Bankshot Sports Inc. was not established with a motive of profit but because the founders recognized and understood that important needs of sports-minded and physically challenged youngsters were being neglected, disregarded or ignored. Bankshot Basketball is arranged such that players proceed along a course of increasingly difficult trick shots for points scored by banking a regulation basketball off brightly colored and maddeningly difficult bank boards and into a traditional basketball goal. After the success of Bankshot Basketball, with about 250 courts around the world, Bankshot Tennis, Bankshot Baseball Pitch and Toss, and Bankshot Tri-Sport were introduced.
