In the lead up to the Jah Swish Invitational Basketball Tournament, the Kwadaso Court-located at the Ghana Armed Forces Central Command- in Kumasi has had a face lift.
The upcoming tournament takes place on Saturday, June 4 at the aforementioned location at 10;00 AM and Ghana’s leading basketball portal gathers eight teams will compete in the tournament.
Renovation works at the Court have been funded by Jah Swish Inc [the non-profit organization for US based Ghanaian basketball phenom Jahlil Owusu]. The court design and paint work was done by ClockWork Brand.
The organization has been involved in philanthropic acts in recent years including Jah Swish giving out basketball sneakers to young players in Ghana’s capital, Accra. Jah Swish is a Nike Youth Ambassador.
The new colours of the court are predominantly black with yellow marking the three-point line and restricted zones with red colour marking the sidelines.
Logos of ClockWork Brand, Jah Swish and Brooklyn Nets Kyrie Irving who is close to Jah Swish have been inscribed at various spots on the court.
