The two new outdoor courts, named Thunder and Rumble, are at 301 S Douglas, next to the Reno Swim and Slide.

Vaughn Sullivan, community services director, said the courts will be ready for the public to use right after the grand opening.

The courts feature a Green Star high-efficiency lighting system, special finishes for the concrete floors, a 10-foot-tall vinyl coated chain link fence and covered spectator benches.

Each court has the Oklahoma City Thunder logo in the center and Midwest City’s Spirit Flies High logo along the perimeter. One court floor is finished in the Thunder blue tone, with the other court floor finished in a beige tone.
