The verdict is in. Supreme Courts, a recently opened basketball facility on Aurora’s far southeast side, is guilty of providing an amazing venue for athletes in the western suburbs.
“Supreme Courts was built so kids could experience a world-class facility near their homes that is affordable and offers programs that enhance the development of the youth athlete,” said Todd Wolfe, former Michigan State standout and Supreme Courts general manager.
Supreme Courts includes four high school-sized wooden courts and 24 overhead baskets, and will provide a home practice facility for Wolfe’s Illinois Attack and Crossover teams, as well as other travel teams such as the Naperville Rockets and Illinois Raptors.
But the fun isn’t just for the kids.
“Our league play starts this weekend and various other programs, including a men’s league, competitive league and high school league will be starting in January,” said Wolfe, of Plainfield.
After the grand opening Dec. 26, Supreme Courts saw plenty of action Dec. 28 when it hosted the Rockets’ Redhawk Holiday Classic tournament.
“The tournament had 86 teams, and 63 had a chance to play at Supreme Courts,” Wolfe said. “The kids truly enjoyed the experience of playing in this special facility. There were numerous positive comments from parents, coaches and athletes about the design and quality that went into making Supreme Courts. Most were shocked that there was a facility of this quality built in their backyard.”
Courts also will be available for rental, and the concession area and multiple high definition televisions make it a great place for nonplayers, too.
