At the beginning of the year, we reported on the induction of Dominique Wilkins first installment of the “CBA Sports and Dominique Wilkins 21 Courts” at the Suwanee Sports Academy. The specialized performance athletic surfaces are now available for private residences.
“This is the first time that a NBA great has had their own signature line of basketball courts and we’re truly honored and elated for what’s ahead” says Jamie Sartin, CEO at CBA Sports. So yea, Lebron may have recently passed Wilkins scoring record but Lebron’s shoe game can’t compete with this venture.
“This innovative surface provides technologically enhanced products that will aid in the overall protection and longevity of the athlete by reducing stress on commonly used joints and lessening the likelihood of serious head injury, should a fall occur. Sport Court PowerGame™ surface has also been utilized on various community courts associated with the Atlanta Hawks Foundation, Nike 3×3 tournaments and Youth Olympic Basketball.
“It gives the opportunity for families to come together, as a family, for an outdoor activity so kids and their parents can stay healthy, bond and play together.”
Partnered in this joint venture is wife of Dominique, Sunny Wilkins, Esq., also an athlete in her own right. Sunny is excited about the Signature Series Sport Courts as she believes “It gives the opportunity for families to come together, as a family, for an outdoor activity so kids and their parents can stay healthy, bond and play together.”
The All-Star duo of CBA Sports and the world renowned Human Highlight Film will also focus on grass root fundamentals with basketball camps and fundamental ‘tech – ‘Nique’ videos that are soon to come for families to enjoy on their backyard courts. The videos will pinpoint the essentials and fundamentals of the game from novice to advance basketball players for boys and girls. Getting families physically fit and interacting with their kids outside on his signature line is of the upmost important to Wilkins.
Wilkins Signature Series are offered in three different variations: The Rookie Series (30’x30’), Pro Series (30’x50’), and Legend Series (36’x66’). The first recipient of Nique’s signature court was purchased by Don Barden for his son’s fraternity Lambda Chi at the University of Auburn. Wilkins will personally attend the ribbon cutting ceremony Wednesday April 6th at 5pm.
Since retiring from the NBA, Wilkins has showed no sign of slowing down. You would think he’d be spending the rest of his days relaxing, catching the breeze somewhere but this man did not lose any of his hustle. As the Vice President of Basketball to the Atlanta Hawks, sports news caster, philanthropist, and business owner he’s like the octopus of the sports industry. Jay Lilly, VP of Marketing and Business Development at CBA Sports, told us how hands on Dominique is throughout the process ensuring the best of quality for his buyers. Which is why building a basketball court is a nice compliment to your home and choosing Dominque Wilkins’ Signature Series Sport Courts is an essential choice.
