Johannesburg (South Africa) – With refurbishments well underway at the legendary Berea Courts in Johannesburg, excitement is building around the upcoming  Red Bull Reign 3-on-3 basketball competition taking place there on the 12th of August 2017.
The courts have already seen a drastic transformation.  Hoping to restore these iconic courts to their former glory, this re-injection into the game is well-received by the South African basketball community at large.
Former South African Team Captain Tskakani Ngobeni is excited to see the courts finally being put to use again: “Beirut, as we called it back then, was home to some of the most legendary streetball.
