Lazyboys Basketball are delighted to announce the completion of a £7k refurb to sports facilities in The Park community centre, Knowle.

Using a mix of crowdfunding (powered by Fundsurfer) and two generous grants by Bristol City Council and the Quartet Trust, ballers of all ages in the community will be able to benefit.

All 60 members of the club, the coaching team and the committee are absolutely stoked about this successful campaign! Whilst the previous equipment was outdated and unsafe, the two new wall-mounted systems look incredible, and are complemented by a wireless multi-sports electronic scoreboard.

The benefits of these improvements extend far beyond the three basketball clubs who use The Park’s facilities – children in the local community have been wowed by the developments, playing on such a high standard of equipment is motivating youngsters to give basketball a go. The giant electronic scoreboard which has been installed can also be used for football, tennis, badminton, and floor hockey. This is a triumph for everyone!

We hope to be taking a group photo with the new equipment soon. Until then, thanks to everybody who helped shape our campaign, contributed donations, and made it a success! This could not have been achieved without the collective efforts of everyone at the club, and the generosity of those outside of it.

This project was a dunk….an enormous, two handed 360 windmill dunk!
