Totton Community Basketball Court

Mark Jackson By Mark Jackson

We are looking to refurbish an old basketball court which is part of a busy park in Totton, Hampshire. In the area basketball is a huge sport but Children in Totton have to travel in order to play.

The Park has a great appeal as it is attached to a popular skate and scorer park, which is always very busy. The basketball court is off set and could be put to so much better use. The court could draw in talented players in the area and allow local clubs like Solent Kestrels to run morning clubs and summer leagues. The court will allow any child of any age to use the court and develop their abilities and life skills. The court and its environment have such great potential, and with a face lift such as new court surfacing, and court markings and new basketball hoops it can be seen a a great place to play. We ha e support from local business who are willing to do the work, and what’s great is they are all ex players who have grown up in the area and would love to help out the area they learned how to play. If we can get the support to make the changes I feel it will enhance the community park and boat the sport to the younger generation in the area.

What we'll deliver:

  • Two new basketball hoops and backboards, fully installed to a safety standard
  • New court surface with artwork and court markings.
  • Surrounding walls painted to cover the graffiti and current artwork.
  • Court side seating for players and children watching games.

Why it's a great idea:

If we can revamp the court the court will attract players of all ages to the area. It can be used for mini summer camps and events to encourage the youth to pick up a basketball. It can link to local clubs allowing them to spot potential talent. It could link with the local primary and junior schools as a place to visit with the children. It can be used for inter schools tournaments and summer events for adults throughout the summer.
