Creative Courts

Wood Street Walls in partnership with William Morris Local & Waltham Forest Flames are launching a competition for the community to help design London's first ever Art Courts at Lloyd Park.

The "Creative Courts" project aims to help promote Basketball in London and beyond, which has seen funding cut nationally despite it being more popular than Tennis, Cricket and Golf between 15-24 year olds.

Visitors to the Garden Party will be invited to draw their design on workbooks, t-shirts, as well as stencils created by Walthamstow design agency Bold & Bold, to overlay on any surface and promote on social media. There will also be a giant basketball blackboard, inspired by Candy Chang's amazing "Before I die..." project. The blackboard designs will be wiped away every hour, not before they are photographed and documented, for new designs to be painted with giant chalk pens. 

For people unable to attend, you can download the Creative Courts workbook at or share your designs by tweeting or posting your designs tagging @creativecourts on social media.

Winning designs will be selected by Waltham Forest Flames, Friends of Lloyd Park, WM Big Local, Wood Street Walls, Ward Councillors and Bold & Bold.

To take part, visit the Basketball Courts at Lloyd Park during the Walthamstow Garden Party to grab your workbooks or paint on our giant court.
