Let’s Hoop: Nike Opens The Courtyard, an Outdoor Basketball Court in BGC

When it comes to playing, watching, and supporting basketball, nothing compares to the energy of Filipinos. With the 2023 FIBA Basketball World Cup only a few weeks away, the excitement is expected to reach a fever pitch, especially since our very own Gilas Pilipinas Basketball team is set to compete.

To further inspire more Filipinos to embrace the sport, Nike has recently opened The Courtyard, an outdoor basketball court in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, where everyone can dribble, shoot hoops, and improve their game.

In an online press release, Nike revealed that their initiative of building courts is aimed at making the game more accessible to everyone. The Courtyard, spanning 2,182 square meters, features two full-size basketball courts made of Nike Grind, along with a separate half-court for practice shooting. The vibrant and eye-catching design incorporates bold colors, patterns, and the iconic Swoosh logo.

In an interview, Jino Ferrer, Nike's country marketing manager, shared that Nike members can easily book The Courtyard by registering for free through the Nike app. Members can reserve experiences and timeslots, enabling them and fellow basketball enthusiasts to meet and connect on the court.

Throughout the year, various programs, skill camps, and athlete camps will be available free of charge. Nike coaches will also lead weekly pickup games and regular basketball camps, providing opportunities for skill development and camaraderie.

Moreover, Nike has partnered with Girls Got Game Philippines, a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering women through sports, to promote women's basketball and encourage ladies to try the sport. Female ballers can participate in events such as "Her Hoops" and "Her Weekend," and The Courtyard exclusively opens for them every Tuesday and Thursday from 6 PM to 10 PM.

So, why not schedule your next bonding session with friends and officemates at The Courtyard? Start by downloading the Nike app here and make the most of this fantastic basketball facility.
