Pick-Up Basketball


Have your child round up his friends and head to your local community basketball court for a game of pick-up basketball. If you don't have enough players for two teams, you can play 3-on-3, or a classic game like Horse.

This is a great way to spend a summer afternoon, and the exercise you'll be getting is a fantastic added bonus!
