From the International Herald Tribune:
The WNBA is giving away a basketball court.
Fans in six of the league's cities will have a chance to win a new court for their town through a contest in which they will compete in various timed drills that will test fundamental basketball skills.
The competition, which will promote healthy competition, sportsmanship and team spirit, is set to begin on Tuesday and will run through Aug. 26 in Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, Houston, Sacramento and Washington. WNBA players will be on-hand to lead the basketball drills during the competitions.
A great way to get the WNBA's name in the local paper. (Although I suspect the angrydumbjock.com crowd would go "Oh no! Cooties!" if they ever stepped on such hardwood.)
