To commemorate the Phoenix Suns’ 50th season in the Valley, Suns Managing Partner Robert Sarver and Phoenix Suns Charities awarded a $1 million grant to refurbish, restore and build 50 basketball courts throughout Arizona. The statewide community initiative was announced at an event on Sept. 20 by Sarver at an event to celebrate the completion of the first refurbished court located at Neighborhood Ministries, which provides community programs for under-resourced families and their children in inner city Phoenix.

“We’re honored to celebrate being a part of this great state for 50 years,” said Suns Managing Partner Robert Sarver. “We take a lot of pride in being a community leader and the investment in 50 basketball courts continues our long-standing commitment to giving back. Most importantly, the announcement ensures that the next generation has safe, welcoming and enjoyable places to play the game we love.”

The 50 courts, located statewide, will be refurbished throughout the Suns 2017-18 season and are operated by the City of Phoenix, Boys & Girls Clubs and the YMCA, among others. See below for full list.
