The official ribbon-cutting ceremony, held at the W.W. Woolfolk Boys & Girls Club, unveiled a state-of-the-art basketball court funded by the WorldVentures Foundation, Nancy Lieberman Foundation and Sport Court International.
“I am thrilled that we’ve been able to build our 12th DreamCourt in Atlanta,” Hall-of-Famer and WNBA star Nancy Lieberman said. “This is an exciting time for the DreamCourts program, and my hope is that the kids in Atlanta will utilize this court as a means to develop extraordinary skills in sports and life.”
The Nancy Lieberman Foundation partners with the WorldVentures Foundation to build DreamCourts in underserved communities around the country. The goal of the DreamCourts program is to provide children with a safe area to play, participate in free basketball clinics, interact socially and learn important lessons about teamwork and good sportsmanship. Since 2010, Lieberman and the WorldVentures Foundation have joined forces to build high-quality basketball courts for children in cities that include Denver, Austin, Nashville and Minneapolis.
“Each time we open a new DreamCourt, I see the impact that this program will have on children and their communities, and Atlanta is no different,” WorldVentures Foundation Executive Director Gwyneth Lloyd said. “I’m sure with this addition, the lives of Atlanta’s youth will continue to move in a positive direction.”
As the program’s latest DreamCourt, youth in Atlanta will be able to play on a 35′ × 60′ court that was constructed using the Sport Court SportGame high-performance safety surface in bright blue and orange colors.
“We are extremely proud to be a part of this effort for the W.W. Woolfolk Boys & Girls Club,” Sport Court Director of Distribution Sales Joe Ure said. “Our goal is to provide kids the safest and best modular outdoor basketball courts in the world, and help outdoor basketball evolve to a game played on modular surfaces that can be both beautiful and safe for athletes.”
