Delightful Multi-Hoop Basketball Tree

This takes playing HORSE to a whole new level! French architecture firm a/LTA has designed the perfect urban park fixture in Nantes, France for kids of all ages and sizes! The basketball tree not only gives kids a greater chance of finding an empty hoop, but it also allows them to have a fair shot at making a basket.

The functional structure known as Arbre Basket, roughly translated as Basket Tree, features five separate basketball hoops attached to limbs that branch out from one tree-like sculptural post. The baskets, each equipped with its own backboard, are each positioned at different heights, allowing for the all-inclusive public to engage in multiple games on the court. Tiny tots and growing kids need not shy away from the fun to be had with their height-appropriate basket. With time, they can move on to the higher hoops, creating a challenge for themselves that can span several years.
