2022 – Ada Jenkins Center

Davidson, NC

The Ada Jenkins Center in Davidson, North Carolina, joins locations around the country as the latest to benefit from Stephen and Ayesha Curry’s effort to invest in 20 safe places to play by the year 2025.

At a “Stephen Curry for 3” event, Stephen Curry ’10 announced that the basketball court at the Ada Jenkins Center, a nonprofit in Davidson with deep ties to the college, would be refurbished by his Curry Brand with Under Armour; the Eat.Learn.Play. Foundation he started with his wife, Ayesha Curry; and The Summit Foundation.

After renovations, the gym received a new red and black paint scheme and features three adjustable baskets that can be lowered for younger players. Special thanks to Dave Barbee & Sport Court Carolina for the work and upgrades that went into this project

This is the ninth court built by Curry Brand and their partners in the “Change the Game For Good” initiative, which is aimed at creating opportunity, access and equality for youth sports in neighborhoods around the world.

Since 2020, the organization has built new courts in Oakland, Baltimore and Australia, among others. They plan to build and invest in 20 safe places to play by the year 2025, with projects that will range from refurbishing basketball courts to programs in the spaces.
