The Golden State Warriors Community Foundation unveiled two newly refurbished basketball courts at Alameda’s Upper Washington Park at a ceremony Friday, Sept. 29. Hundreds of Alamedans were in attendance.
The Warriors worked in partnership with the Good Tidings Foundation, Aquafina and the Alameda Theatre & Cineplex to bring the new courts to Alameda. The courts are painted in Warrior blue. The Warriors’ logo now appears at the half-court line and the Alameda Recreation and Parks logo along the sidelines.
The Alameda Theatre & Cineplex will be presened live simulcasts of select Golden State Warriors games this month.
Warriors fans can now watch their team for free on the big screen at the historic theater. The theater will present live simulcasts of six games beginning today at 7:30 p.m., when the Warriors face Oklahoma City Thunder at Oracle Arena. Other scheduled dates are March 9 and 23 and April 3, 7 and 10.
Free tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis at the box office. The box office will have a two-ticket per-person maximum.
Hundreds of Alamedans migrated over to Bay Farm Island Monday, June 30, to watch the formal unveiling of Curry Court at Leydecker Park at 3225 Mecartney Road.
The court is named after Golden State Warriors’ point guard Stephen Curry. Curry graced the hundreds in attendance, including more than 30 toddlers who were selected to participate in a basketball clinic on the newly formed basketball court, with his presence. He shook hands and posed for pictures.
