Let Google Maps Find You A Street Court

Courts of the World

Courts Of The World (COTW) is a new website for street basketball players from all over the world. The site includes a feature called the "Court Finder", which enables users to find public basketball courts in their neighbourhood.

The court finder is a customized Google Maps application with user generated content. Registered users are able to add new courts to the map. It is possible to find courts on the map by entering a location into a search box and selecting a radius distance that you wish to see results for. Alternatively, it is possible to select a country or city from a list displayed under the map.
