Raising the hoops and nets!

Each time we go on a tour inside the new UW Health Sports Factory in downtown Rockford, we see something new and exciting.

Several of the basketball hoops and volleyball nets are now suspended from the ceiling inside the building as it continues to take shape.

Extensive works is also being done on the ground floor on the concessions area, and the elevator that will lead to the second floor restaurant.

Work on laying the massive hardwood floor will take place over the next several months, leading up to the scheduled opening of the facility in May 2016.

The first tournaments have already been booked, starting in June 2016.
