Basketball Manitoba is pleased to announce a successful wrap-up of its multi-year campaign, which has reached its pinnacle of 500 nets donated to outdoor basketball courts in Manitoba. The milestone was reached this week, with all 500 nets now out and delivered.  

The "Nothin' But Nets" campaign was launched in the spring of 2021 as the world was coming out of the pandemic as outdoor basketball was the first option back for the sport.  Since then, 500 hoops in Manitoba have been outfitted with high-quality meshes.  

The campaign 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 15 years, and the free nets campaign saw that data jump from 100 to over 300 documented outdoor courts.  Data can still be submitted to the growing virtual map at any time.  

The Nets campaign distributed 500 free basketball nets to 176 courts in over 50 communities in Manitoba. The recipient courts ranged from 1 to 4 hoops on each site. The courts receiving free nets included...
