Basketball and Volleyball enthusiasts and students at the University of Papua New Guinea (UPNG) campus will enjoy the game with the timely makeover of the basketball courts courtesy of BSP First.The upgrade of the UPNG Basketball and Volleyball courts was done by staff of BSP First Port Moresby branch as part of their 2015 Community Project Initiative.
The team spent their weekends over a period of 2 week to assist a local contractor to refurbish the courts. The Court got a new coat splash of green paint, new basketball hoops installed and benches installed around the playing area.
