The true object of all human life is play;
Earth is a task garden;
Heaven is a playground.

You might remember this quote from the basketball movie “Heaven is a playground” many years ago. It’s still one of my favourites and holds a certain truth we shouldn’t forget: There’s no point in playing if you’re not going to have fun!

A basketball court is a special place and we shouldn’t take it for granted. It’s very easy to get caught up in practice and competition, so always keep in mind that this is the place you should have fun.

Enjoy walking onto the court.

Enjoy looking up at the hoop towering over everyone.

Enjoy the feeling you get when the ball goes in.

Enjoy your teammates.

Enjoy the look of amazement on everyone’s faces when you do something cool.

Enjoy playing. Have some fun.
