Inclusive Play

Before Bankshot was invented, little thought was given to inclusive sports or intentionally designing sports to accommodate overlooked segments of the population. Bankshot was designed to allow all players to participate with no disadvantage regardless of size, strength, gender, age or disability. Bankshot sports were invented to address the issue of lack of activity, lack of movement and lack of the outdoors.
