In 2016 the Foundation was gifted a large structure by David Mahoney and Family, included in this donation was the provision to disassemble and transport it to the Bruce Pulman Park with the support of Nigel from SAS in Takanini where the Colosseum will be built. The Land has been provided by the Bruce Pulman Park Trust.
There’s a Better Way Foundation’s Founder and CEO Glen Green has called this the Colosseum. It will be a meeting place to challenge each other on the Basketball court as well as a place to challenge each other to become the best we can be to our self’s and others.
The goal of this project is to build a world class, covered, outdoor street Basketball arena in South Auckland.
Where Ballers from New York and around the world can compete against New Zealand’s best and ballers from all Communities can challenge each other.
The Colosseum will also be used for community development in teaching Basketball and promoting positive lifestyles focusing on fitness and personal development.
We will partner with schools and community’s providing a platform to play Basketball not only on the streets of Auckland but competing on the World stage has we have done for the last five years.
