A TOP-OF-THE-LINE facility will be available to basketball fans and enthusiasts in Mandaluyong City in the coming days.
This became possible last Saturday after NBA Philippines opened its first-ever Community Court at the Reyes Gym in Mandaluyong City.
Sports officials said they hope to help build local basketball communities and provide opportunities for fans and aspiring players to play the game for free at a premier sports facility in Metro Manila.
“We are proud to introduce the first-ever NBA Community Court in the Philippines, which reflects the NBA’s mission to inspire and connect people everywhere through the power of basketball,” said Mae Dichupa, Senior Director of the Global Marketing Partnerships of NBA Philippines.
The collaboration was made official at a launch event at the NBA Community Court, with TITAN Chief Operating Officer Fatima Pilares.
The facility features an indoor basketball court that can hold regular basketball development events throughout the year.
This includes youth and coaches clinics, exhibition games and tournaments.
Over the next few months, the NBA Community Court will host programs that are part of the Jr. NBA, the league’s global youth basketball program.
Scheduled for the coming months are the Jr. NBA Elite Development Camp, a series of invitation-only Jr. NBA clinics, and “Her Time To Play” activities, the league’s initiative to inspire girls ages 7-17 to learn and play basketball in a positive and healthy way.
“TITAN is a valued partner who shares our commitment to community engagement and innovation, and we look forward to offering this platform to Filipino fans and aspiring players at all levels so they can come together around their shared love of the game in a premier sports facility,” said Dichupa.
