·2 min read

The Oklahoma City Thunder announced on Thursday the opening of a new dedicated basketball court at Scissortail Park on Friday, Sept. 23 at 2:30 p.m.

The Thunder are partnering with Devon Energy to create the court. It is the Thunder’s 30th community court in Oklahoma and the fourth court with Devon Energy as a partner.

“We are thrilled to partner with Devon Energy to dedicate another community court at such a meaningful location as Scissortail Park,” said Christine Berney, Thunder vice president of community engagement, in a press release. “From the original MAPS projects to a globally recognized NBA franchise, and now a world-class park with engaging experiences, Oklahoma City continues to impress longtime residents and draw visitors from around the world. As we’ve witnessed the development of this amazing community space right next to the House of Thunder at Paycom Center, it was a natural fit for us to make this the home of our 30th community court.”

The park is a three minute drive and less than a mile away from Paycom Center, the home arena for the Thunder.

“We’ve closely watched the development of Scissortail Park from Devon’s headquarters and look forward to seeing it come to life,” said Christina Rehkop, Devon’s director of community relations. “We know this Thunder court will help build community in Oklahoma City, ensuring it’s a vibrant place to live, work and play.”
