The Milwaukee Bucks, alongside Fiserv Inc. and Nancy Lieberman Charities, held a ribbon cutting for a new “Dream Court” in Milwaukee’s Sherman Park neighborhood Monday.
The court, located in Sherman Park at 3000 N. Sherman Blvd., is high school regulation size, with two new baskets and a high-performance Sport Court surface in gray and black.
“It was a dream for me to play on a court when I was growing up in Brooklyn,” said Nancy Lieberman, a Basketball Hall of Famer and two-time Olympian who founded Nancy Lieberman Charities, which serves students primarily from low-income families with STEM programs, scholarships, civic engagement and other pursuits.
“Working with Fiserv, we will ensure more of America’s youth have a healthy space in their community, providing them the keys to success, confidence and self-esteem.”
Fiserv, the Brookfield-based company that owns naming rights to Fiserv Forum where the Bucks play, is a global provider of payments and financial services technology.
“Sports have a way of bringing people together — we saw it this summer as the people of Milwaukee roared the Bucks to victory in the NBA Finals and celebrated that historic achievement,” Bucks President Peter Feigin said in a news release. “Bringing a Dream Court to Sherman Park allows us to connect with the youngest members of our community and make a difference in their lives in a tangible way.”
The construction is part of a Dream Courts program that began in 2010, and more than 100 courts have been installed across the country since.
