Pigalle, Paris, FR


Colorful basketball court in Paris


With its colorful design, this court jumps right out at ya. It takes me back to when I was a kid, scouting out the best playgrounds in my area. Pure nostalgia. 


The location also adds to its special allure: situated in the smack-middle of two classic Parisian buildings in the 9th arrondissement.


Imagine all the adventures you could go on after the game!


Ngau Chi Wan, HK

This court, located within the Choi Hung Estate in Hong Kong, offers a special vibe. 


The rainbow-colored buildings let you travel right into the 70s. And the sheer size of those things must make you feel like you just landed on another planet. 


An out of this world experience!


Angels Gate, San Pedro, CA, USA

Angels Gate is almost too beautiful to be true. 


The sunrise and sunset at this place alone must be enough to convince local hoopers to play ball all day every day.


A dream vacation destination for ballers worldwide.


City Wall, Dubrovnik, HR

I’m a complete sucker for old European stuff. So this court is an absolute dream for me.


A basketball court situated at the top of city walls that were built 800 years ago? And an A1 view of one of the most picturesque coastal cities in Europe on top of that?!


C’mon, you can’t ask for more than that.


Venice Beach Courts, LA, CA

The Venice Beach Court is an absolute classic amongst outdoor courts.


It’s been featured in movies like White Man Can’t Jump. And with its location right on Venice Beach, it has one of the most beautiful backdrops of any court in the world.


It just don’t get no better than this.

The Philippines aren’t just home to Manny Pacquiao, the greatest pound-for-pound boxer of all time. They’re also building quite a reputation in the world of basketball. 


In Taguig, you’ll find one of the best-known street courts in the world. It’s located right in the middle of The Tenement: a residential building that houses over 3,000 inhabitants in just 700 units.


The court became famous through the series of exquisite murals that it has displayed throughout the years. Recently it featured a beautiful tribute to the late Kobe and Gigi - RIP.

The most iconic outdoor basketball court of them all. You knew it was coming.

To add to that NBA stars like LeBron, KD, Wilt, and Dr. J, regularly grace the concrete of Rucker Park and put on a show for crowds you would never expect to see at an outdoor basketball court. 


New York is home to an onslaught of iconic basketball courts, from Dyckman to The Cage, but this one, no doubt, stands tall at the top of the list.
