Celebrate March Madness with Basketball Rewards from Escalade Sports

Top corporate gifts include basketball hoops & shootouts

For many of us, 2021 has offered more of the “new normal”, with extended periods of remote work and lots of activities at home. But some of the biggest annual events are still happening right on schedule, including March Madness. This year’s tournament will be played entirely in central Indiana – a first for the NCAA – and kicks off March 14.

Ahead of the action, the Division I Men’s Basketball Committee recently announced its top 16 teams, and it’s likely your employees are already filling out their brackets.


Some employers worry that March Madness can be a distraction, but in actuality, embracing employees’ excitement about the tournament can boost morale and foster a sense of camaraderie. This year, take the celebration to the next level with premium corporate gifts like our basketball rewards from Escalade Sports.

Portable gifts for games on the go

Transform any cul-de-sac into a neighborhood court with a Silverback Portable Basketball System. Available in 50-inch and 54-inch sizes, these hoops offer advanced technology and strategic engineering for effortless transportability and unmatched stability. As the weather warms up, these portable gifts offer assembly of the hoops in 90 minutes or less and get the neighbors together for games of HORSE or Around the World.

In between games, help young kids hone their skills with the Silverback Junior Hoop. Setup is hassle-free – the backboard easily mounts to most round and square vertical poles, making it perfect for outdoor play or indoor practice in the basement.

Best-in-class corporate rewards for a pro experience

Bring professional, NCAA-style competition to your neighborhood with corporate rewards like Goalrilla’s in-ground systems.

The Clear View 54” Basketball System is designed to take anything the suburbs throw at it. It can handle over 1,000 pounds of vertical torque to the rim, and the anchor mounting is as strong as concrete. Add a Universal Basketball Pole Pad for increased safety, and attach an LED Basketball Hoop Light to maximize game time during evening or late night summer shootarounds.

Whether it’s 2-on-2 matchups between parents and children, or full squad, half-court games with friends, these in-ground systems have the durability and technology for a pro-style experience.

Basketball incentives for fun indoor play

The fun doesn’t have to stop when play moves indoors – mini hoops offer a way to keep the game alive. They mount quickly and easily to standard doors, be it a bedroom door for some last-minute, jump shot practice or an office door, to fire off a few shots while tracking bracket results.

The Silverback LED Mini Hoop adds extra flair, with infrared sensors that detect when you score and light up the backboard. Additionally, this mini hoop boasts a shatterproof, thick polycarbonate backboard to withstand tough play.

For a little in-office competition, Shootouts are a great addition to recreation rooms or employee lounges. They also work as covetable dealer loader items for customers. These basketball incentives create fun indoor play.

In short, there are several ways to build on March Madness excitement, whether it’s for your employees, customers, or business partners.
