The NBA held a basketball clinic to celebrate the completion of the improvement and modernization works carried out at the Quisqueya basketball court in La Romana. This project is part of the initiatives that NBA Cares, the department responsible for corporate social responsibility projects within the league, is organizing in Latin America as part of the NBA’s 75th Anniversary season celebrations.
This is a social progress that seeks to contribute to the improvement of infrastructure in needy communities and facilitate the practice of basketball globally. This remodeling is part of the activities that the league is carrying out around the world to celebrate the 75th anniversary of its birth, including in Latin America the remodeling of other courts in Mexico, Brazil and Argentina.
The La Romana court features a design by Dominican artist Johann Dovente that represents the country’s culture, including an illustration of a player wearing a traditional Carnival mask preparing to dunk. The vibrant colors reflect the league’s commitment to inspire youth throughout the Dominican Republic – yellow captures joy and energy; pink signifies the importance of a positive mindset; blue symbolizes confidence; and orange underscores fun.
