Under Armour and the NBA have tipped off a five-city court refurbishment initiative. The most recent in Newark, New Jersey with NBA Legend Jay Williams and WNBA Legend Sue Wicks.
The Lake Houston YMCA saw NBA Legend John Lucas II take part in a ribbon-cutting and lead a fitness clinic on their brand-new basketball court.
Charlotte Bobcats guard and NBA/WNBA FIT Team member Kemba Walker unveils a brand-new basketball court at the Boys & Girls Club of Charlotte.
The second court was unveiled at the Roxborough YMCA in Philadelphia with NBA Legend Bo Kimble.
The first stop: Madison Square Recreation Center in Baltimore. The court was dedicated with the help of NBA legend and Baltimore native Muggsy Bogues.
Four additional cities -- Charlotte, N.C., Philadelphia, Houston, and Newark -- will also be refurbished this summer, with NBA FIT clinics to be held at each location on the day the courts are unveiled.
“Our court refurbishment initiative with the NBA will provide young athletes with increased access to train, practice and play basketball in an environment that promotes an active and healthy lifestyle,” said Matt Mirchin, SVP, Global Brand and Sports Marketing. “Revamping each of these basketball courts is a reflection of our continuous efforts to help the next generation of young athletes reach their on-court and off-court potential.”
