Every Court Has a Story

Public park basketball courts are by definition public spaces. Places where neighbor and stranger practice coming together to achieve a common goal. Places where young people can problem solve with adults in their communities who are not family, teachers, or coaches.  

Public park basketball courts are also intimate spaces. Where people can imagine and activate their dreams. Every public park court is homecourt to many, each with their own story. Tell us yours. 

In June, 2023, we’ll pick one court to receive a full renovation (crack repair, patch fill, resurfacing, color coating, and backboards/rims as needed), courtesy of Five-Star Basketball, Project Backboard and Local Hoops.
