DMCI Homes builds character, communities through sports amenities

Players of the 2018 DMCI Homes Inter-Area Basketball Tournament take their oath of sportsmanship during the recent launch of the annual competition at the DMCI Homes Corporate Center multi-purpose gym in Makati City.

It may just be one of the usual amenities but there is a reason behind the presence of a basketball court in most DMCI Homes residential condominium communities.

DMCI Homes President Alfredo Austria said having a basketball court or other sports amenities as part of a residential condo project is in line with the company’s mission of providing an environment conducive for the holistic development of its residents.

“The basketball court was not placed there just for fun. It’s supposed to be a learning tool for the community. It’s part of our goal to provide a learning environment for all of the members of the community especially the kids,” Austria explained.

“If they engage in sports, they will learn lot of things - discipline, camaraderie and so on, aside from having good interaction with their fellow residents. So to us that is very important,” he added.

Up-and-coming basketball talent Prince Khan, a resident of DMCI Homes’ La Verti Residences along Taft Avenue, Pasay City could attest to how playing the sport has helped him gain friends in the community.

“I just met them in the basketball court. Now we’re like family. We’re very close to each other,” the 15-year-old said of his teammates in the La Verti Residences basketball team.

Khan’s team is representing Area 5 in the 2018 DMCI Homes’ Annual Inter-Area Basketball Tournament which is an annual activity among 5 areas representing more than 40 condominium communities: Area 1 for communities in the north; Area 2 for Acacia Estates, DMCI Homes' township development in Taguig City; Area 3 for residences in the south; Area 5 for Manila and Mandaluyong area; and Area 6 for the Pasig City area.

Businessman Gio Caunca, being a frustrated basketball player, on the other hand, takes comfort in the presence of a basketball court in his DMCI Homes’ Mayfield Park Residences condo community in Pasig City.

Caunca said by spending time in the basketball court, he has made new friends that led him to manage his own basketball team competing in basketball leagues in Marikina and Pasig City.

“I’m a frustrated basketball player so what I did was I just managed my own team,” Caunca shared, chuckling.

Miguel Costes, a young professional in a leading e-commerce business in the country, meanwhile said he would not exchange the basketball court for any amenity in his Levina Place condo community.

“It’s the only place that I visit regularly every weekend after the hustle and bustle of each work week. Basically, we just look forward to spending the next three hours or four playing basketball,” said Costes who has been living in DMCI Homes’ mid-rise development along Jenny's Ave., Pasig City since 2017.

Though they live in different DMCI Homes communities, the three are one in saying that a basketball court and other sports facilities are vital part of their respective condo communities.

“I have a house in Marikina, Pasig and Cainta. But since 2005, I have been living in Mayfield because it’s where I feel at home the most. I really like the community and of course the amenities especially the basketball court,” Caunca beamed.
