One Last Time: Nike commemorates closure of Nike Hyper Court BGC with Community Basketball Event
Has it been two years?
To commemorate the closure of the Nike Hyper Court @ BGC, Nike will hold a community basketball event to be attended by ballers, coaches and local athletes this Sunday, December 15.
With over 377,00 hours of training, games and community events, the Hyper Court has been at the heart of BGC, giving players and fans a reason to better themselves through these events that ran over the last two years. This Sunday’s event will include a series of 3×3 games for local female and male ballers, as well as feature some of Philippines’ most renowned basketball stars in an exhibition shoot out, including Nike Athletes Kiefer Ravena, Aljun Melecio, CJ Cansino, CJ Perez, and Camille Clarin.
Jino Ferrer, Country Marketing Manager of the Philippines said, “Since our Hyper Court launched two years ago at the BGC, it has cemented its position as a thriving hub for Filipino ballers. Our collaboration with Google has ensured players have access to digital coaching and skills training as they step onto the court. We’ve had other collaborations and initiatives that leveraged on the energy of the courts, for example, basketball clinics and grassroots tournaments run by one of our key authenticators and retail partner, Titan; product trials and launches, plus cultural celebratory moments of the sport involving dance and rap battles. Our vision with Hyper Court was to offer ballers of every level a place to feel inspired, hone their skills and realise their full potential. With the other Hyper Courts around, we invite ballers to continue to visit them to raise their game.”
“Manila’s passion for basketball is unrivalled and it has been a privilege to see the courts provide a communal place for the surrounding BGC communities to raise their game. Nike will continue serving Filipino ballers with continuous innovation and inspiration, aptly as one of the greatest basketball nations globally” said Ferrer.
The Nike Hyper Court @ BGC will remain in operation till the 31st of December. You can continue to visit the remaining three Hyper Courts – Ususan Court (Taguig), Scarlet Homes Covered Court (Paranaque) and YCL Covered Court (Quezon City). The Comembo Covered Court (Makati) is under renovation. For more details on Nike Hyper Court, visit Hypercourt.ph.
