The Warriors Community Foundation, in partnership with the Good Tidings Foundation and Pacific Gas & Electric Company (PG&E), dedicated “Ricky Barry Court” at the Edgewood Center for Children and Families on Thursday, October 25th. The playground and basketball court were made possible by the Makin’ Hoops program, a partnership between the Warriors Community Foundation and the Good Tidings Foundation, which has refurbished more than 75 basketball courts around the Bay Area.

 

The renovation work included an acrylic resurfacing of the 37,000 square-foot playground, restriping of the track, fresh paint on the kickball field, a fresh coat of paint on the Warriors-branded court, and the addition of two new NBA backboards, complete with new nets at each end of the court. The courts will feature new “Rick Barry Court” signage in honor of the Golden State Warriors legend, who is known for his unorthodox and iconic underhand free-throw shooting technique.
