WHAT: Under Armour and Brandon Jennings have teamed up to bring a state-of-the-art basketball court renovation to Rowley Park in Brandon’s hometown of Gardena, CA. Rowley Park is Brandon’s original “home court,” the place where as a young child he learned the love of the game that still drives him to succeed today. The updated outdoor court will be unveiled at a celebration kicking off NBA All-Star Week.
The updated court features a new Sport Court rubber surface with the Under Armour and Brandon Jennings “BJ3” logos and premium NBA regulation hoops. The celebration brings Brandon’s energy and excitement for his hometown back to the people he loves most, with festivities for kids including a H.O.R.S.E. competition against Brandon, pick-up games, a Mobile Barbershop providing free haircuts, Under Armour gear prizes, and the culmination of the celebration---a ribbon cutting with Brandon Jennings and the Mayor of Gardena.
