The weather is finally starting to feel like fall here in Middle Tennessee and there are plenty of ways to bring fall fun to your own happy backyard! So grab your family and head outside to enjoy one of the activities below:

Camp out on your trampoline. This month’s weather is perfect for a night under the stars. If you’ve got a trampoline in your backyard, it makes the perfect basecamp for the evening and gives you a little cushion for the night. JumpSport even makes tent accessories to put directly on your trampoline!

 

Celebrate that basketball season is back. October 25th kicked off the NBA season. Kick off the season in your own backyard with a fun basketball celebration of your own. Play games like H-O-R-S-E, Around the World and BUMP or grab a few neighbors and play your own game of 2-on-2, 3-on-3 or more.

Enjoy the World Series fun. It may be the beginning of basketball season, but don’t forget about a reason to celebrate another sport – the World Series. The Cubs are in the World Series for the first time in 70 years and it’s going to be a great series! Pull out the baseball equipment and start your own game in the backyard to celebrate America’s pastime.

Turn on a backyard movie. Set up a sheet on the side of your house or rent or buy an inflatable movie screen and show a movie outside. Get out the blankets and get comfortable for a fun night just for your family or for the entire neighborhood.

Create a cross-backyard scavenger hunt. Get the whole neighborhood involved and create a cross-backyard scavenger hunt. Collaborate with the neighbors to set up clues that lead kids to have to do obstacle course-type activities to get to new clues. Kids will have a blast and be getting exercise along the way!

Rake Leaves. Don’t underestimate the power of taking a chore and turning it into fun! Get the kids involved in raking leaves and then let them jump in the piles when all is done. Or take it up a notch with a leaf pile obstacle course incorporating your playset and/or trampoline.

What Makes PROformance Hoops Different

PROformance Hoops have been perfecting their basketball hoops for more than 20 years and are the best in-ground basketball hoops available on the market today. The difference is in the details and there are certainly plenty of details that make PROformance Hoops stand out from the competition. Here are the features that help PROformance Hoops outplay all of the rest:

 

Glass BackboardSafety Tempered Glass Backboard – PROformance makes their safety tempered glass by heating and then rapid cooling the glass so that it is harder and more durable, making it unlikely to shatter. Each of the backboards is wrapped with a Full Perimeter Aluminum Trim that protects the glass and adds additional stability. Safety Tempered Glass is used by both the NCAA and NBA and provides a consistent rebounding experience no matter where the ball hits the backboard.

 

Corrosion Protected One-Piece Steel Pole – PROformance poles are 50-200% thicker Steel Polesteel than industry standards require and are manufactured in a multi-step corrosion and rust-resistant process. Their process of removing oils, grease and dirt and then dipping the poles in an acidic solution to remove flakes of steel, followed by coating the poles with zinc and a final powder coating ensures that they have the toughest poles around.

 

Base PlatePremium Gusset Support Base Plate – Welded steel at the base of PROformance poles provides maximum stability while slotted holes ensure that the goal is level and square. The added stability means less vibration and shake on the goal no matter how aggressive the basketball play is.

 

 

Premium Pier Mount Anchor System – PROformance’s one-of-a-kind anchor system not just Pier Mountmeets, but exceeds all standards for in-ground basketball hoops. The zinc and powder coated base plate, thick Pier Mount J-bolts and 4 pieces of reinforcing rebar ensure that PROformance Hoops are installed level and secure each and every time.

 

 

HardwareStainless Steel Hardware – The stainless steel hardware resists corrosion, even in the most extreme climates while the pole’s Chromium Oxide film self-repairs from any scratches that may result from installation or play. Plus the hardware won’t rust or corrode over time so there’s never any need for expensive repairs or replacements.

 

 

Bolt-to-Steel Rim Attachment – The rim is mounted directly to the steel instead of the why-bolt-to-steel
backboard, so there’s never any stress put on the glass backboard itself. This means kids and adults can play aggressively near the rim without worrying about damage to the backboard.

 

 

why-breakaway-rimDual Spring Safety Breakaway Rim – Two high-tension stainless steel powder coated springs allow the rim to break away when pressure is put on it and then rebound right back into position, keeping both players and the basketball goal safe. The attached hide-away net is easy to replace but doesn’t have protruding hooks that could cause injuries during play.

 

 

Power Arc 90 Lift Assist – A dual cylinder system allows anyone to easily adjust a PROformance why-power-arcHoop from 6 ft to 10 ft with just a crank. A tension screw mechanism and internal springs provide low resistance so it’s easy to set the goal to an accurate height each and every time.

Create an Olympics in Your Backyard

nashville trampolines

The Olympics may be starting to wind down in Rio but if your family is anything like ours, the Olympic spirit may be around for a while! We’ve enjoyed watching both the primetime events as well as the more obscure events during the day and our kids have been begging to host their own Olympics in the backyard. If you’d like to do the same, here are some ideas for creating your very own Backyard Olympics:

The Set-Up: Make it an educational experience. Whether it’s just your kids or you’re inviting the whole neighborhood, assign kids various countries from the Olympics and have them dress in their respective colors and come with information on that country’s dress, language, customs and most famous athletes. If you want to add even more fun, encourage kids to bring a special snack from the country they’ll be representing.

The Competition: Set up any number of games in your backyard using your basketball hoop, trampoline, swing set and more and assign a point value for first, second and third place to each activity. Have each child do each of the activities, naming a gold, silver and bronze winner for each event. The winner of the games is whoever collects the most points at the end of all the activities.

Here are some ideas but be creative and have fun with it so it fits your backyard and your participants:

Trampoline: Create a set “routine” each child must complete and rate each one on how well they do each step. Or give them 10-15 minutes to create their own routine and judge based on creativity as well as steps performed and completed.

– Basketball: Play a game like H-O-R-S-E, Around the World or create a tournament bracket for games of 1-on-1 if you have enough participants.

– Swing Set: Get creative with your swing set! Create an obstacle course that includes the monkey bars, slides, rock climbing wall or any other fun equipment you have on yours. Or your kids can jump off the swings and try to “stick” the landing.

– Other Fun: Add a slip ‘n slide to comically simulate a swimming event, coordinate a synchronized swimming competition on land or use your favorite Frisbee as a discus.

Have fun with it and be creative to come up with both serious and silly games in which kids will love participating!

The Closing: Have a closing ceremony at the end where everyone takes some time to talk about their favorite activity or to just have a big dance party to celebrate the conclusion!

If your backyard Olympic competition equipment is lacking, come by Happy Backyards in Franklin to add a swing set, basketball hoop or trampoline so you’ll be well-prepared for the 2020 games!
