"HoopDome" multi-court basketball complex open for business

    TORONTO, March 30 /CNW/ - Canada's first state of the art,
multi-gymnasium basketball only facility is now open for business in Downsview
Park, Toronto. HoopDome is an impressive 42,000 square foot premier indoor
basketball facility, consisting of four regulation courts and three smaller
half court 'cages'.
    HoopDome makes up for a deficiency in the space available to play
basketball in the GTA. HoopDome was first conceived by Ted Badner, a Toronto
high school basketball coach who believes that better access to quality court
space is needed for players of all ages. With the help of an investment group,
headed by Glen Grunwald, former Toronto Raptor GM and current Senior VP of
Basketball Operations for the New York Knicks, Ted's vision of HoopDome is now
a reality.
    "HoopDome is now open and this impressive indoor facility will give a
real boost to basketball in Toronto and help solve a chronic shortage in the
number of places to play," said Grunwald. "Basketball is the fastest growing
sport in Canada and the most popular in schools across the GTA, making the
arrival of HoopDome a much welcomed event in our city. Basketball players of
all ages and skill levels are going to love this place."

    HoopDome provides facilities for tournaments, coaching clinics, after
school programming and house leagues for players of all ages. Three mini-court
"cages" will be available for pick-up games on a year round basis. The high
end, hardwood courts will be open past midnight on weekends, providing a
positive and safe environment for young people 365 days of the year.
