We've completed phase one of the refurbishment of Northridge Way basketball court in Hemel Hempstead.
The court - used by local residents, up and coming youth basketball players including members of both local clubs Hemel Sharks and Hemel Storm - has been resurfaced with a SuperSport Multi Play tarmac and has new hoops, fencing and a small seating area.
Hemel Hempstead firm Whitton Electrical, based in Maylands, has sponsored the project with £23,228 of funding and we've invested a further £17,000.
The court currently has temporary lines - the final court colouring and lines will be laid in the spring when there will be an official opening event.
Cllr Julie Banks, Portfolio Holder for Community and Regulatory Services, said: “The court is a much-used and well-loved feature in Hemel Hempstead. We are very grateful to Whitton Electrical for its sponsorship of this community project. We are
committed to providing access to first-class sporting facilities for our residents and the new refurbished court will be a fantastic space for residents, basketball players and our local clubs.”
