Basketball England Launches #ProjectSwish to Provide Nets for Outdoor Hoops

Basketball hoop in England

A new summer project from Basketball England will aim to spruce up courts around the country by providing nets to outfit the hoops.

Basketball England is launching #ProjectSwish – a new initiative that aims to put 1,000 basketball nets on outdoor hoops with the help of local players.

“For me, in basketball, there is nothing more satisfying than the sound of a swish,” Basketball England Senior Delivery Manager, Peter Griffiths said.

“#ProjectSwish is a fantastic new initiative that will benefit basketball players of any age or ability to get more enjoyment out of playing. Plus, it helps us locate courts around England and focus on potential courts to revamp.”

Not only can players help make a difference to their local court with #ProjectSwish, the new programme carries the dual aim of helping to extend Basketball England’s knowledge of outdoor courts. With a greater database of outdoor venues, that information will help identify potential areas for redevelopment going forward.

Recipients of a free net can help Basketball England increase the ‘Find A Court’ database by posting a picture of their newly installed net on Instagram with the court’s location and the #ProjectSwish hashtag.
