The Stevens Square Gymnasium is home to one of the nicest courts in Portland, Maine with plenty of free parking, air conditioning and a sound system. And there’s a lot more going on than basketball. It accommodates a regulation volleyball court and three pickleball courts. It’s home to a host of recreational and cultural programs and is available for private rental.
Maine Sports Group
The Gymnasium is overseen by the Maine Sports Group, a non-profit organization providing opportunities for youth sports skills development and scholarships for families unable to afford fee-based sports programs.
Maine Basketball Academy
The Maine Sports Group operates the Maine Basketball Academy here. Its year-round programs teach the fundamentals of basketball and instill confidence in young athletes with clinics, leagues, AAU teams and travel basketball through the Blue Wave Basketball brand.
Pickup Portland provides a fun way for co-ed adults to easily make friends and enjoy basketball, volleyball and pickleball in a low-pressure, semi-organized way which also supports Maine Basketball Academy’s non-profit mission.
The gymnasium is available for rent for team practices, training, corporate outings, family functions and parties. Contact Steve Haines at (207) 233-2677 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
