Fun Basketball Games To Play On Holidays

By Mega Slam Australia

No matter what holiday you are celebrating, you can always find a way to play some basketball! There are so many games that you can play with your family and friends that will keep everyone entertained, both young and old. The basketball systems are considered old-fashioned because they require a hoop and a ball. But they are still fun for most people. So, what are some of the basketball games you can play? .we’ve compiled some of our favorites for the holidays below:

Around The World

Divide the court in half and have two teams stand at opposite ends. On the whistle, players take a step forward on their right foot only to have it counted as one hop; then move their left foot forward without taking any steps, counting it as one hop. Thus, one team will be going clockwise around the world while the other goes counterclockwise—the first team to get to the opposite end with no hops in their step wins.

Five In a Row

Have everyone line up around the rim, reaching out to catch a ball thrown by your teammate. As that player throws the ball, he jumps forward and catches it in his other hand; as he catches it, he runs back to the starting spot and keeps running towards that end of the court. When he gets there, he stops and does a perfect hang-dip as part of the dunked-and-dunked rules. To make this game more interesting, each player shoots their shots simultaneously and has to get 5 in a row before going back to their starting line.


This game is great for kids or even adults (it’s a lot tougher than it looks!). Essentially, you have to play one-on-one but are allowed to execute shots only in a certain order (which will be predetermined by you). This list includes free throws, layups, jump shots, and half-court shots from one corner of the court until someone scores. When that happens, each player needs to try to make a shot from the same spot. If they miss, they then get a letter (in order): H, O, R, S, and E. The first player whose word is spelled out loses the game.


The object of the game is to get rid of all the other players on your team first. The only way to do this is by using a “basket,” an old-fashioned term for the rim. The players line up on opposite sides of the basket and they alternate turns shooting one-point shots until one player misses. The first person to miss is then eliminated, and that player’s team takes their place in line. Keep going back and forth until there is only one person left on each team.

Basketball is a game enjoyed by people of all ages. There are numerous ways to play, which make the game entertaining for everyone. These games are also great for parties’ events and get-togethers so everyone can have fun instead of sitting around and getting bored. There are so many holiday basketball options that it would almost be impossible not to find one that will work for your family or friends.
