The Bankshot Sports™ Organization offers many different family sports, which are non-aggressive by design, including: Bankshot Basketball™, Bankshot Tennis™, Bankshot Pitch and Throw™, and Bankshot Soccer™.

Bankshot™ Sports are family sports because players do not play against one another but along-side one another. Bankshot™ Sports are non-running and non-exclusionary accommodating wheelchair players, the physically and cognitively challenged, grandparents, children and everyone else at the same time. These sports are called "Total -Mix Sports based on Universal Design"

Bankshot basketball is the other basketball sport. Often called “miniature golf with a basketball.” A series of trick shots played on a course laid out like mini-golf or in any shape. The court presents increasingly difficult stations starting easy, becoming moderate and then diabolical but makeable. A game for all levels of ability and great fun. No running or jumping. Age, stature, gender are irrelevant. Sports Illustrated published  a wonderful story about the game which may be found on the website. Bankshot was recognized with the Landscape Architect Design Award for the Bankshot Playcourt in Betsy Head park, Brooklyn N.Y.

There are about 800 courts worldwide. Conceived for inclusion, integration and socialization, participants play the court not each other. No body contact. The concept is play alongside not eternally against others. We need not play sports solely to defeat opponents. Courts are indoors or outdoors and several museums including the Boston Children's Museum offer a Bankshot pavilion for the interactive convergence of sport, play and art.

We call Bankshot “total mix sports based on universal design.” Only a swimming pool rivals Bankshot in diversity of inclusion. A figure-it-out game, it takes focus and concentration, intelligence, especially in understanding trajectories - a couple of science museums present Bankshot for teaching physics– and a very soft touch. Little Jimmy in a wheelchair can go out with his brother Stevie on a given sunny day without waiting for a program – that’s important - for a drop-in facility at a Bankshot court. What other sports facility provides immediate access, inclusion and drop-in at a ball-playing sport?
