Roanoke Parks and Recreation invites the community to the dedication of the Washington Park basketball courts. These new courts are being named in honor of local athlete Ricky Renell Wright. Ricky was a member of the Patrick Henry High School basketball team and named a Virginia All-State Basketball player in 1978. After high school, Ricky went on to play for the Winston-Salem State University Rams, where he attended college.
The ribbon cutting will take place Friday, May 6th at 4:00 PM followed by a free 3-vs-3 basketball tournament. For more details and to participate in the tournament, please sign up here.
