Bankshot Playcourts offer ball playing with a difference. Participants play alongside, not against one another. That's the key to inclusion. Unlike the "playfields"—baseball, tennis, football, soccer, etc.—that receive the lion's share of a community's budget and are entirely exclusionary by their very nature, there is no running, no aggression, no offense or defense in a Playcourt. Speed, strength, size and stamina are irrelevant. Playcourts are more than accessible—they achieve inclusion, integration and socialization for all and for the greatest age groups and maximum diversity of participants.
