Rockets, Memorial Hermann, and the city of Houston to Unveil Renovations at Moody Community Center
Posted: May 10, 2022 -- 10:08 a.m.
Thursday, May 12, the Fertitta Family, Houston Rockets, the Clutch City Foundation, Memorial Hermann Health System, and the City of Houston will unveil renovations at Moody Community Center (3725 Fulton Street, Houston, TX 77009).
The Ribbon Cutting Ceremony is scheduled to begin at 4 p.m. In addition to overhauls of both an indoor and outdoor basketball court, the project includes a refurbished reading and learning center complete with computers, STEAM equipment, and gaming systems. The refurbishment of the basketball courts is an extension of Memorial Hermann's mission to improve the health and well-being of all Houstonians, and part of the system's vision to create healthier communities, now and for generations to come. The learning center is part of a broader NBA league-wide initiative during its 75th Anniversary Season to create or improve Live, Learn or Play Centers in each team's market.
Mayor Sylvester Turner will lead the ribbon cutting ceremony along with Memorial Hermann's Chief Community Health Officer Carol Paret, Rockets head coach Stephen Silas and President of Business Operations Gretchen Sheirr.
Following the ceremony, the Rockets will conduct mini-clinics for area children at the two basketball courts.

The Rockets will continue to partner with Moody Community Center and the City of Houston Parks and Recreation Department by bolstering afterschool and summer programs with reading and wellness initiatives along with basketball clinics and camps.
Established in 1995, the Rockets Clutch City Foundation's mission is to provide hope, help and inspiration through the game of basketball with the aim of making Houston a better place to live for all Houstonians, especially the underserved.
