I am a total novice - I had a hoop at home growing up, and haven't played since.  Love shooting some hoops as a form of relaxation, but do it far too rarely.  I'd love to play more often - I'll try and get out a few more times down the local park in the summer

Hey guys. I used to play a lot when I was at school, especially high school. Unfortunately, that was 7 years ago. Since then I have only been playing occasionally with some big breaks. However, about 3 months ago we put together a team with friends and no play a social league which is a good fun. 

I have also been refereeing semi-professionally for a couple of years and these days do an occasioanl game when the league is short of refs.

Hi! Let's play! 

I would like to hear from people:

do you know a good court to play? post it here

I work in central london, and playing in the evenings would be great for me, I wound't mind organising something if that's what's holding people back!

Hello, my name is Chris from Dorchester Dorset. I have been playing basketball seriously for about a year now (I am 15) and need some advice on my virtical jump, I need to be able to dunk. At the moment 07/03/2012 I am 5ft 10. If anybody can reccomend any exercises or help on increasing my vertical jump that would be great. I can reach just above the middle of the net.

Im 5ft 8 and can do about the same. Maybe you should consider the way you jump or even your jumping style completely.

My name's Leon, POINT GUARD. Thats right,I can dribble.

Oh, my vision is incredible too.

Hope i dont sound too full of myself but i guess im confident of hoe good i am.

I do think my shot is letting down me down though.

Any suggestions on how to better my game I would take gladly.

Hi, I'm Micah and I play every week in our college gym. I will be a senior next year and I plan on absolutely dominating these pick up games, and leaving my legacy on the school!

Hi bud, I would contact your local borough council or local sport agency. I live in Shropshire and found out through my County Sports Partnership where to play. Although the local government structure is different in London I am sure you can find someone to ask. Alternatively contact your local sports centre directly and ask if anyone runs a pick up session at any point in the week.

Good luck!

Hi, my name is Iain.

I got back on to basketball this year after a very long break from the game (not played since Uni). I now run a weekly friend group session for an hour on a Monday night and have just started attending a pick up game every Thursday.

Really enjoying being back playing ball. I am also hoping to do some coaching badges in the future. Any advice on how to improve my shooting techinique is greatly appreciated!
