Stratford Basketball Association Outdoor Court | In-Kind Services

Project Overview

The Stratford basketball Association (SBA) has teamed up with local residents and business to bring a state-of-the-art, NBA-sized basketball court to the community. With 450 players registered in 2022, the SBA expects that number to increase going into 2023 and hopes that the new court will help meet rising demand while also continuing to grow interest in the sport.

The City of Stratford donated the land and the SBA spent over a year fundraising the $250,000 they needed to bring this project to life. Located at the Stratford Education and Recreation Complex (SERC), the new court is 94 by 50 feet and features a colourful, all-weather surface, six baskets and lighting so that games can continue into the evening.

MTE’s Involvement

Our team is always eager to support community projects the best way we can, which is why we were thrilled to have the opportunity to donate our time and expertise to help the Stratford community achieve their goal.

The development of the basketball court required both surveying and civil engineering services, both of which our team provided ‘in-kind’. We completed the site plan, site grading, landscaping and foundation design for the new basketball court.

The court officially opened on June 25, 2022 and our team’s name is proudly displayed on a plaque at its entrance.
