Tree-Shaped Basketball Hoop Design Has Branches For Players Of All Ages

Tree-Shaped Basketball Hoop Design Has Branches For Players Of All Ages

French architecture firm, a/LTA has designed the perfect urban park fixture in Nantes, France for kids of all ages and sizes.

Multi-hoop basketball playing has been perfected by French architecture firm, a/LTA. Drawing design inspiration from trees, the aptly named, ‘Arbre à Basket’ (Basket Tree) is a unique urban park installation in Nantes, France. featuring five separate basketball hoops attached to branches connected to a tree-limb like post.

Each basket is positioned at a different height encouraging simultaneous all-inclusive play on the court. We  love this clever design element that accommodates toddlers, big kids, teens, and adults alike with functional height-appropriate baskets. The basketball tree gives children a greater chance of finding an empty hoop, by giving them a fair shot at making a basket and even greater challenge as time progresses.
