Basketball Manitoba is pleased to announce a successful wrap-up of its campaign to distribute 250 free basketball nets to outdoor courts in Manitoba.  The "Nothin' But Nets" campaign launched earlier this spring and offered free basketball nets to any existing outdoor basketball court in Manitoba that is listed on the Manitoba Outdoor Basketball Court Map.  The virtual map has been collecting outdoor court data for almost 10 years and the free nets campaign saw that data jump from 100 to over 225 documented courts.  Data can still be submitted to the growing virtual map at any time.  


The Nets campaign distributed 250 free basketball nets to 110 different courts in 30 different communities in Manitoba.  Recipient courts ranged from 1 to 4 hoops on site.   The courts receiving free nets included...
