Akels celebrates with Hamilton community at the opening of the new Woodlands Park Basketball Court

Thanks to the work of the beloved Hamilton band, a new professional basketball court has been officially announced in the lowlands.

Woodlands Park rally courts are made possible by Akels. In January, Akels, in collaboration with the council Nrinder Nann and Jason Farr, planned to refurbish some of the courts in some of the cities in need. ..

Akel's frontman Max Carman said the band liked to play basketball on local courts during the tour, but Hamilton didn't have a quality public court. I noticed and said I wanted to change it.

"Where is the neighborhood where you can use a little love? What parks can you use a little love? And they said Woodlands was there."
