Build Excitement About March Madness with Incentives from Escalade Sports

Basketball gifts featuring indoor and outdoor hoops and shootouts

March Madness is coming to an office near you and we have basketball gifts for all sports enthusiasts. The 2020 NCAA tournament kicks off March 15 and concludes on April 6 with the championship game in Atlanta. The buzz is palpable – popular college basketball analyst and correspondent Andy Katz has already released his predictions. In his bracket, Michigan State, Kansas, Louisville, and Florida will make up the Final Four.


Katz’s predictions will likely inform your staff’s picks. An estimated $10.4 billion will be wagered on March Madness this year, with much of it falling into office pools. In fact, 89% of employers view office pools as a way to build camaraderie among workers. But gambling isn’t the only way to get the team engaged around March Madness. A wide range of premium gifts and incentives from Escalade Sports can help basketball enthusiasts get excited and get active.

Basketball rewards that can travel anywhere

Basketball rewards can transform any space into a basketball court with the Silverback Junior Basketball Hoop. The Junior Hoop uses Lock ‘n Rock Technology, which enables easy setup in any location – indoor or out. The backboard mounts onto most round and square vertical poles. The Junior Hoop also features a spring-action breakaway rim, which protects the player and the backboard during slam dunks.

Company logo gifts with hoops that can be decorated

Several of Silverback’s Mini and LED Hoop styles can be decorated with your company logo.  One such example, the 23” LED Mini Hoop, has a shatterproof polycarbonate backboard and infrared sensors that detect and light up the backboard each time a basket is scored. These company logo gifts are fun for everyone.

Encourage friendly competition with shootout games

Escalade Sports’ selection of shootouts offer an easy way to practice shooting skills while competing against friends, family, or coworkers. And even better, several options feature customized backboards that can be digitally printed with your company’s full color logo.

The Decorated Double ShootOut and Decorated Single ShootOut both have EZ assembly frames and come loaded with air pumps and two inflatable mini basketballs.
