Halftime at Skyline Grand Opening Kicks Off a Full Month of Free Basketball and Activities Downtown at Southwest Court at Skyline Park
Enjoy sunshine and hoops from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and a half court shot contest for a chance to win roundtrip tickets on Southwest Airlines on Thursday, March 15!
Southwest Airlines and the Downtown Denver Partnership invite Denver to hoop it up at the Southwest Court at Skyline Park. The full-sized basketball court, which is free and open to the public, is Southwest’s latest addition to Downtown Denver.
As the Court’s official “tip off” event, Southwest invites Denver professionals, residents and visitors lace up their high tops and take part in a half-court shot contest – sink a shot from the half court line and win one of 10 roundtrip tickets from Southwest Airlines.
Hot shots including Nuggets mascot Rocky, Downtown Denver Partnership President and CEO Tami Door and Denver City Councilman Albus Brooks will join Southwest Airlines at the event. In addition to the contest, visitors can enjoy a live DJ, FREE pedicab rides around Downtown Denver and live game updates on the tournament’s first official day.
The Southwest Court at Skyline Park, which was recently home to the Southwest Rink, will be open from March 15 to April 12. Future activities will include a children’s basketball skills clinic, corporate 3-on-3 challenges and other fun events. Check out www.southwestcourt.com for more information and to register.
