For the game of bump all you need are two basketballs, a basketball net and a marked free throw line.Backyard Game Bump

The object of the game is to “bump” the other players out of the game by making a shot before the person behind you in line does. Any number of players are able to play this game. 



  • All players line up at the free throw line with the first two players having a basketball in their hands. 
  • The first player shoots and tries to make their basket from the free throw line.
  • After the first player shoots their basketball, the second player then shoots.
  • If the first player misses their shot they must follow their rebound and try to make a basket from anywhere in the playing area.
  • The game at this point is between player one and two.
  • If player two makes a shot before the first player, then player one is “bumped” from the game.
  • If player one makes their shot, the ball should be rebounded and immediately passed to the third player in line. The contest is now between players two and three.
  • Players can also use their basketball to “bump” the other players basketball away from the playing area. You may not bump the ball out of someones hands or during a shot, you can only bump the ball on a missed shot.
