The Slamball : the new form of basketball
The Slamball in few words:
Slamball is an atypical sport which incorporate the principles of basketball.
It was invented in Los Angeles by Mason Gordon in the early 2000s.
The thing is that it’s possible to “dunk” with trampolines which make the game much more spectacular.
The slamball is listed as a mix between the rules of Basketball and the violence of contacts that we can find in hockey or american football.
Moreover, Slamball players have protections on their body.
Each team has 4 players: – 2 “gunners” (attacker)
- A “stop” (defender)
- A “handler” (middle)
In each part of the court,we can find four trampolines so that you can see more “dunks” and therefore a more impressive spectacle.
A field goal after a jump on the trampoline make 3 points and other field goals make 2
Except for the contacts, the rest of the rules are the same as in Basketball.
