This Trickshot Makes Your Holiday Shopping A Slam Dunk
November 09, 2023 (PRLEAP.COM) Lifestyle NewsABetter Design Company today announced that its ultimate indoor trickshot basketball hoop, Bank-A-Ball®, has scored as the solution for the tough-to-get guy-gift on this year's holiday shopping list.
Recently named as the 2023 Mom's Choice Gold Award, National Parenting Publications Award, and the Family Choice Top Product, Bank-A-Ball was specifically sited by the award reviewers, as well as consumer influencers, as a great gift for guys to hang in the office, mancave, work lounge, frat house and anywhere guys gather.
"Because you can hang it in any room, I think we've helped solve the problem of finding one of the most difficult gift ideas for guys ages 20-60," David Beker, creator of Bank-A-Ball, explained. "I invented Bank-A-Ball as more than a super sturdy indoor basketball hoop because you can get inventive with trickshots rather than just standard shooting. In all our test marketing, guys played longer and enjoyed that challenge more than a typical novelty hoop."
Bank-A-Ball ($34.99 for ages 4+) is the adjustable angle basketball backboard and rim that hooks atop a standard-sized door to turn any room into a playroom. Bank-A-Ball is not a regular mini hoop. Bank-A-Ball is a sturdy, 6-position segmented backboard with a 7-position spring-loaded adjustable, collapsible rim. It revolutionizes the trickshot possibilities with a whole new angle(s).
The story of Bank-A-Ball:
David Beker, 53, grew up as a major sports fan in Minneapolis, MN. Emulating the play of his favorite players from his hometown teams, particularly the local Minnesota Timberwolves, Twins, Vikings, and Wild, David would try to reenact the daily highlights and spectacular shots, runs, passes and catches. His favorite was basketball. However, being in the cold Midwest U.S., oftentimes playing ball was limited and had to occur indoors. As a result, trick shots became a constant creation for David and his friends. Now, decades later and with six kids of his own, David rekindled some of his fondest childhood sports activities and created a way to add trick shot creation to any living room, bedroom or playroom. "I always felt that bank shots allow for a margin of error to pull off the most spectacular shots. With some math skill and engineering prowess, I discovered that there are even more spectacular options if there were multiple back board and rim angles that allow for unlimited creativity." Playing Bank-A-Ball and creating new trick shots has since become an everyday occurrence for David and the Beker kids, and now it's on its way to "home" arenas everywhere.
