Putuo has opened its first smart public basketball court located in Zhenru Sub-district recently.
The court adopts QR code scanning access and charges through apps like AliPay or WeChat.
Residents who would like to use the court can also check on the cell phone to see if the venue is already occupied.
Previously the land was taken by an illegal structure and was later cleaned up after the district’s campaign to crack down on such unlicensed buildings with safety and hygiene issues.
To make the most use of the vacant land and after making a survey in the neighborhood, the street official collaborated with the district sports department to build the smart basketball court.
