A Basketball Court For Cripplegate Park supported by the Worcester Wolves Academy
Worcester has a big basketball community but very few outdoor courts for local people to use. We are petitioning for a court in West Worcester, specifically Cripplegate Park which is central and easily accessible by foot, car and public transport.
Basketball is a sport which is accessible to the masses with very little equipment needed. Worcester itself is a ‘basketball city’ with an extremely successful BBL team, university teams and local clubs but we desperately need to give more opportunities for ‘grass roots’ basketball in the community which new outdoor courts would provide.
This facility would be used by hundreds of children and adults and would also give the Worcester Wolves Academy the opportunity to run community events and competitions to encourage more people to engage in one of the biggest, fastest growing, yet underfunded sports in the UK.
