Per reports gathered by Ghana’s leading Basketball portal, residents particularly the youth have yearned for such a facility for over three decades.

The construction of the new court increases the number of basketball courts in the Greater Accra Region and the country in general; inadequate facilities is a major issue that has affected the growth of the sport in Ghana.

An exhibition game involving several Dansoman-based players was played to celebrate the occasion.
