Stars, H-E-B, & SBGB Unveil Renovated Court

37-year-old Community Court in West Side San Antonio Refurbished

The San Antonio Stars players, along with H-E-B and Silver & Black Give Back unveiled a newly renovated court at Inner City Development (ICD) on Monday. As part of the Stars’ WNBA Legacy Project, the 37-year-old outdoor community court was given a much needed makeover to provide the ICD children with a fresh and current space to exercise and practice. The newly designed space was made possible through grants from H-E-B and Silver & Black Give Back.

Stars players Jia Perkins, Danielle Robinson and Sophia Young-Malcolm, along with the Fox, helped unveil the new court to serve a new generation of basketball players. For the story behind the court and the renovation project, click here. Photos of the unveiling can be found here.
