8 Things to Know
New Love Court in Fort
By Naveen Ganglani
Most people who love the sport of basketball will tell you it’s more than just a game; it’s become a way of life.
With each passing year, hoops culture continues to get bigger and better – especially in this basketball-adoring country of The Philippines, where the game has become a religion.
So it’s good news then that Titan, a PH basketball collective, has opened a pair of outdoor basketball courts in the heart of Bonifacio Global City called the Titan Love Court which has already been making waves on social media.
Know more about the newly-launched project, which was two years in the making:
Where is the court located: On the corner of 32nd Street and 9th Avenue in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.
What time is it open: From 6AM up to 12 midnight, every day.
What makes the court special?
Made up of a sick red, white, black, and gold design that will better decorate your Instagram profiles, too, the Titan Love Court features a pair of regular-sized basketball courts that are perfect for the summer season.
According to Titan, the two courts are installed with a proprietary 5-Coat Acrylic Sports Surface System, providing for non-slip, quick-dry surfaces.
Writer’s note: as someone whose knees hurt after playing hoops on unappealing surfaces (trust me, I’m actually not old yet), I was at first afraid of the effects following a few scrimmages on the Titan Court. I was pleasantly surprised when my knees were ready to go even further four games in. You don’t have to worry about the floor at all.
Why did Titan work so hard on this project?
Again, basketball has become a way of life. But what’s even more important is that it brings people together.
“Amidst the pace and energy of today’s modern city, the playground stands as a special place for everyone to come together in the name of basketball. Build it and they will come, so they say: to play, to learn, to compete and to celebrate the game we all love,” was how Titan described it in their press release.
Whatever size, gender, or race you are, on this playground, everyone’s welcome.
You might just get to see some familiar faces
After the media had their run, popular basketball cagers and former UAAP MVPs Bobby Ray Parks and Kiefer Ravena laced up their shoes and tried out the new court. A number of other basketball players have also already visited the new establishment, and expect more soon.
Even Kobe Paras, a Pinoy playing US NCAA basketball, has expressed his excitement to play on the Titan Love Court when he returns to the country.
