A Sport For Public Spaces

Basketball is an easy sport to play. Here’s a reminder of its humble beginnings when peach baskets were used as hoops.  If you’ve got a ball and some creativity there’s nothing stopping you from being able to find a place to play, and that’s why this photo series detailing how basketball is played in the Philippines caught our attention and why we think it’s so cool.

A Sport Alive and Well

“It’s not restricted to having a full court. To play basketball, you don’t need the best equipment. It’s something you can even play as an individual”, says Dave Carswell, the photographer behind the series.

The enthusiasm is apparent. Backboards mounted to palm trees or fences mean the sport is played wherever you can find a flat surface, and there’s no shortage of creative hoop solutions.
