A Durable Court for Multi-Generational Play

Multi-Generational-Court

A Janesville, Wisconsin family installed a Sport Court basketball court in their backyard back in 2003, when their oldest son was in high school. Now, almost 20 years later, the boys have left home, but the court continues to offer fun and fitness to new generations of basketball players.

“I’ve let everyone know it’s a park, and anyone is welcome to use it at any time. I’ve got a little mini fridge with water and ice pops for them, and there’s kids there all summer long just playing,” said homeowner Barry Badertscher.

Barry played hoops with his sons Cy, Chance and Cade when they were in public school in Janesville. The court was a big upgrade from the driveway hoop they had played on previously. Recently LED lighting was added, so the neighborhood kids can continue play after dark.

Although there are no grandchildren yet, the Badertscher family has fun times waiting for the next generation right in their backyard. The durability of the Sport Court surface ensures that a backyard Sport Court will last for years with little maintenance.
