What we're about

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 its own story. Tell us yours!

Our second annual Every Court Has a Story campaign is now live. We invite you to nominate a basketball court that holds a special place in your heart but needs much-deserved attention and care. This contest provides an opportunity to showcase a love for your court and recognize the importance of preserving and revitalizing it.

Through this contest, the winning court will undergo a comprehensive refurbishment process, including crack repairs, patch filling, resurfacing, vibrant color coating, and the addition of backboards and rims, if necessary.
