Seven Trees Community Center Refurbished Court Marks The Warriors Community Foundation’s 80th Court Refurbishment Project In The Bay Area, Dating Back To 1999 Court Dedication Ceremony With Warriors Guard Quinn Cook To Begin At 3:30 On February 11
OAKLAND, Calif. – The back-to-back NBA Champion Golden State Warriors, along with PepsiCo, Creative Sports Concepts and the City of San José, will unveil the Warriors’ 80th refurbishment project, a streak that began in March of 1999 at Brookdale Park in Oakland. The 80th court will be unveiled at the Seven Trees Community Center in San José on Monday, February 11, it was announced today.
Warriors guard Quinn Cook will be in attendance for the court unveil ceremony, which will begin at 3:30 at Seven Trees Community Center, located at 3590 Cas Drive in San José, and will be followed by a basketball clinic, hosted by Warriors Basketball Camp, from 4:00 to 5:00.
The basketball court at the City’s Department of Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Services’ (PRNS) Seven Trees Community Center was refurbished in partnership with the Warriors, PepsiCo and Creative Sports Concepts as part of the Makin’ Hoops program, which has restored 80 basketball courts in the Bay Area. The renovation work included a refinished basketball court surface with new lines, including a San José center court logo, an NBA backboard, protective covers on the scoreboards and shot clocks, and a wall decal with basketball imagery.
“I’d like to thank the Golden State Warriors for their commitment to providing youth with access to quality recreational programs and facilities,” said San José Mayor Sam Liccardo. “Upgrading this quality play space at one of our busiest community centers will directly benefit the thousands of residents who visit the center annually, and I look forward to building on our partnership with the Warriors to help ensure all San José youth have the opportunity to achieve their dreams on and off the court.”
“We at PepsiCo are committed to delivering top-tier performance while being responsive to the needs of the communities we serve around the world,” said Steven Cuellar, PepsiCo Inc. General Manager. That commitment — what we call Performance with Purpose — is about expanding our portfolio of more nutritious products, with the aim of shrinking our environmental footprint as a good global citizen and working to lift up people and families, from widening the circle of opportunity to providing relief in times of need. With more than 3,400 employees in Northern California, we have the responsibility and the privilege to support the communities in which we do business and where we live. We are very proud to partner with the Golden State Warriors in providing safe and quality courts for our youth!”

The newly refurbished court will further the PRNS mission to build healthy communities through people, parks and programs.
