What is H-O-R-S-E?
H-O-R-S-E is a game played by two people on a basketball court.
The idea of the game involves matching baskets. The player who
makes shots that the opponent does not duplicate, wins the game.
Example: The second person shooting must duplicate the first
person’s shot, if it is made. If the second shooter misses, he/she
receives the letter “H”. If the first person’s shot is missed, the second
shooter may attempt any shot. If his/her shot is made, the opponent
is obligated to duplicate it. Each time a shooter misses a shot that
he/she attempted to duplicate, a letter is “awarded”. The game
continues until one person accumulates 5 letters or H-O-R-S-E.
- Games are 1v1 and are self-officiated. Players will try to match the shot their opponent makes. If an opponent does not duplicate the shot, they will receive a letter. The game continues until one person accumulates 5 letters or “H-O-R-S-E”. Shots can be taken from anywhere on the court. Shots can be normal attempts or called shots, which opponents have to duplicate. No dunking.
- Participants should check-in at the event site 10 minutes before their scheduled game time.
- Hand sanitizer will be available at the courts.
- Rules are subject to change.
