The city of LA has locked basketball hoops in Venice Beach, even as more outdoor and indoor activities get the green light to restart. Some locals are trying to get the locks removed with the #FreeTheHoops social media campaign. Meanwhile, they’re trying innovative methods to get games going on the courts.
