The local basketball community in Manila is in for a treat as Nike gears up to open an outdoor basketball court named "The Courtyard." This exciting development comes just ahead of the highly anticipated 2023 FIBA Basketball World Cup, and it's set to provide year-round access to basketball for the local community.

Located in the heart of Bonifacio Global City, a bustling district in Taguig, Metro Manila, Philippines, The Courtyard covers a spacious area of 2,182 square meters. The space will feature two full-size basketball courts made of Nike Grind, a sustainable material created from recycled athletic footwear. Additionally, there will be a half-court training area designed for practice shooting. This outdoor basketball haven is expected to become a popular hangout spot and a hub for sports enthusiasts, particularly the youth in Manila.

Nike is known for its commitment to expanding sports access and promoting community engagement, and The Courtyard is a prime example of this dedication. The company firmly believes that the heart of any local basketball community lies in its courts. By providing these spaces, Nike is actively making the game more accessible to everyone, encouraging active participation, and fostering the growth of the sport.
