ABOUT THE FEATURE
Leigh travels from London to Paris to visit two iconic courts; Pigalle Duperre and Dupleix.
It wasn’t all buckets and baguettes. He nearly misses the train, gets locked out of a few courts and has to walk across Paris with his crew to find a game.
And this is where you join us. We present to you a 15-minute feature of the international pickup tour from Paris.
We visit the iconic Pigalle Duperre court, before heading over to Dupleix to shoot some hoops right under the Eiffel Tower. Along the way we give out jerseys, make some fantastic friends and create memories that will last forever.

ABOUT THE PROJECT
Leigh Ellis, the Anthony Bourdain of basketball, explores the world and its most iconic outdoor basketball courts.
Each court is unique and brings ballers from different backgrounds together. They play, laugh and bond over what unites them - their love of the game.
It’s more than just basketball.
In each city, Leigh eats and drinks with the local community, spreading the joy of the game.
So far, Leigh has travelled to 18 countries across 4 continents, from Germany to Zambia. And he’s not done yet - the journey continues.
Where should Leigh travel to next?
