Sims just can't resist a little b-ball action when their fun levels are low! Even the adults and neighbors like to join in. Make your house THE fun house in the neighborhood with the SuperDoop Basketball Hoop. No assembly required.
Basketball returns in The Sims 2: FreeTime with the H-O-R-S-E of course Basket Ball Hoop.[n 1] It builds Body skill, increases Sims' fitness, and builds enthusiasm for the Sportshobby. One or two Sims can play, and will take turns making baskets from different angles, but cannot play an actual game.
Sims will change into athletic wear when playing. If a Sim autonomously decides to shoot hoops, he or she will continue walking to the court even if the player cancels the action.[n 2]
The object includes both the goal and the court, and it can be placed on flooring or terrain. There are two versions, one with a green court, and one in which the court is invisible. It must be placed outdoors because the top of the goal is higher than the top of a wall. However, it is possible to build an indoor basketball court by either placing the object first, then building a two-story (or higher) structure around it, or by using the moveobjects cheat.
The name is a reference to the variation of basketball known as H-O-R-S-E, and the saying that "a horse is a horse, of course".

Basketball returns in The Sims 3 Store as the Rim Rockin’ Basketball Hoop, which costs 593 SimPoints. As in The Sims 2: FreeTime, Sims will change into athletic wear when playing. If a Sim autonomously decides to shoot hoops, he or she will continue walking to the court even if the player cancels the action. Sims can either practice dunking or challenge another Sim to a basketball contest.
There is a glitch where the basketball does not appear in a Sim's hands when they play on the court. This can be fixed by installing KT's Store Fixes.
