Our newest community project featuring a basketball court, just received its official reveal with a ribbon cutting on Sept 10 2022. We are excited to report two more basketball courts are to come for Barrie Housing very shortly!
Barrie Housing noticed their outdated playground facilities were not being utilized and that their youngest residents were focusing on playing basketball. However, without an actual basketball court or net, the children were playing on the streets and parking lots. This ignited their idea of installing a basketball court to keep the young residents united (after the long isolation of the Covid pandemic), active, engaged and safe. With the help of us at Sport Court and a grant funded by The Recreational and Cultural Services Grant Program of Barrie Ontario, we were able to build exactly that.
