Basketball court at Mouchão Park in Tomar

When I lived in the City of Nova Lisboa (now Huambo) when Angola (Africa) was still a Portuguese colony, I used to play basketball at a club called Atlético Clube do Huambo, which I think still exists. I played mainly junior basketball and that allowed me to travel to other cities in Angola like Malange, Luanda, etc. Anyway when I saw this basketball court at Mouchão Park in Tomar, all those memories of my youth came back to me. At the time I shot these photos, no one was playing but I sure felt the need to throw a few balls into the basketball hoop if the court was open and I had a ball on hand.

Memories from my days as a basketball player came to my mind and at this moment I wish I could have access to this basketball court in Tomar and throw a few balls into both hoops.
