The National Basketball Association (NBA) and petrochemical company SIBUR announced the launch of a refurbished multi-sports gym on August 29th at the Tyumen State Oil & Gas University branch in Tobolsk. The court will be the fourth sports venue refurbished under a multiyear partnership to provide safe and accessible basketball facilities, to develop basketball in Russia and to support an active lifestyle.

The opening ceremony, similar to past events, will be attended by an NBA legend, who will conduct a basketball clinic for local children at the refurbished court.

The court refurbishment process has already been finished with infrastructure renovation and installation of a new multi-functional court. The gym will be outfitted with modern equipment set to NBA standards. The renovation will heavily rely on the use of polymers. The court improvement in Tobolsk will increase opportunities for the large student population and city residents, as well as SIBUR’s employees and their children, to learn and play the game of basketball.

SIBUR and NBA began its partnership at the beginning of 2014, with the goal of developing of basketball in Russia. Last year under the partnership three venues were refurbished in Perm, Tolyatti and Voronezh. The launch ceremonies were attended by NBA stars Brook and Robin Lopez and NBA Legends Robert Horry and Muggsy Bogues. The players conducted clinics for local children on the refurbished courts. These legends and players also held clinics for basketball fans in Moscow. Four-time champion Horace Grant of the Chicago Bulls also attended the NBA 3X tournament held in the Russian capital last year.
