A HELPFUL play from Ballarat Specialist School neighbours has allowed the chance for hoop-time at the Norman Street campus.
Senior students moved to the farm campus this school year but had been lacking in recreational infrastructure in the yard.
Drew's Paddock development partners Villawood Properties and Midlands Golf Club gifted $1500 in a boost for two new basketball rings.
Midlands chairman Darren Bandy said the club had a strong history with the school, helping provide work experience for students, and Midlands was happy to step up to help.

"The senior campus does terrific work and we're delighted to be helping students experience the fun, the teamwork and the exercise they'll find in basketball," Mr Bandy said.
Ballarat Specialist School caters for children with mild, moderate and complex intellectual disability aged three to 18 years old. The senior campus has 160 students.
Farm campus manager Graham Cheesman said the rings were important for senior students' well-being and outside exercise.
Villawood's Julian Perez said the project was a great way to encourage students to enjoy healthy outdoor activity.
Meanwhile, construction is set to soon get underway on the Drew's Paddock development in its 33-lot first stage at Heinz Road. The full development in Invermay Park will feature 111 lots billed for premium living, some with fairway and lake views.
