TikTok star says Malvern basketball courts are ‘the best in the country’

A TikTok influencer has recommended the basketball courts in Malvern as some of the best in the country.

TikToker MartinD3x3 picked the courts at Victoria Park as one of his favorites when asked to recommend a place in Worcestershire to play.

On his channel, which has over 7,600 subscribers, he said the courts at Victoria Park were: “probably some of the best outdoor courts in the country.

“I think when they opened they had around 500 people, so it’s definitely worth a visit.”

Victoria Park Courts, also known as Malvern Hoops, officially opened in August 2021 after several years of planning.

The project, driven by the Malvern Hoops campaign led by Jon May and Tom Bennett, was carried out alongside their work with Malvern City Council.

The courts feature a new high-tech playing surface made up of interlocking tiles, providing excellent traction, shock absorption and ball rebound.

They were the first in the country to use this Flex Court surface which will be available on a public installation in England, with the Hoops hoping it will attract a range of users from complete beginners to league competitions and even training sessions. hosted by Worcester Wolves.
