The old city of the Golden State Warriors, San Francisco is our next stop for the Top 5 courts. The last two years the Warriors are playing a really good game. So we visited their old city for the best places to play a game these days.
As seen in on for the most influential movies of the last decade (Pursuit of Happiness).
Tucked away on a skinny alley in San Francisco’s Chinatown, a basketball court perched on the side of a building and surrounded by a chainlink fence provides a memorable view of the city, dropping you in the middle of the skyline.
Most locals don’t even know this concrete slab up a flight of stairs off Joyce Alley (between Sacramento and Clay) exists — but they’ve very likely seen it before.

During the daytime, you can spot a lot of young talent at the Excelsior playground. The walls of the court are colourfull with great graffiti paintings. At midnight there is a place for an older crowd of players. The playground has two courts so there is space enough to play a game.

In this tiny public park, you will have a breathtaking view while playing a game. The tall trees that surround the park serve as a protective windbreak.

Panhandle Park has a lot of playing space. With different half and full courts. Besides all the space, the court is known for his character active and interesting mix of players that come there during the day.

George Sterling Park
Sweeping view of the bay, George Sterling park is nothing short of beautiful. This court will check all boxes. Great for basketball as well catching arguably one of the best views to offer.
