Basel: basketball anyone?

Hi everyone!

I (28 male) have relocated to Basel a month ago and have been looking for people to play basketball with. Although I have played basketball all my life, I am a bit out of shape as I haven't played serious games for an year+ (moving all over europe, new cities etc.). But I would love to play almost on a daily basis.

Let me know if you are up for a game. Also, if you have any suggestions do let me know.

Thanks guys!

Have a wonderful 2014 ;-)

Hi cck,

Count me in! ;-)
I'm totally out of shape too, but I was also used to play and here I once tried to play with a real team (Birsfelden) but after few months I had to give up since it was too demanding cos' of the unconfortable time-schedule.

Basel is full of playgrounds and the weather is still ok to play outside.

Thanks!

Hey matthew23,

I am available on a daily basis. Let me know a good time and place for you to play. Also if you know more people bring them over.

Hopefully, the weather is not about to go bad (regardless of the forecast for the coming days/week).

I think step by step we can organize something.

Hey,

unfortunately I might bring only one person over, even if he's kinda beginner. I guess we should wait at least for another person replying. What do you think about?

Anyway, to me next Monday eventually works...wherever it's more convenient you.

keep in touch!

Yes, I agree with you. If nobody replies back (quite likely) and the weather permits we can get together and shoot next week or something. Anywhere around Basel is fine by me (I don't know the courts).

Monday is fine by me too. Let me know in advance.

If you get an idea how we can get more people to come and play post it here. I'll do likewise. In general, if we had more people we could have probably booked an indoor court...

Re: Basel: basketball anyone?

Hi guys
Count me too!
I've been searching for some free, non-perfectly-swiss-organized games, but even in Romandie it's difficult :-(
So, I'm in Basel quite often and I'd like very much to play a bit.
Mondays would be ok, but what about Saturday (tomorrow) during the day?

Hey x-bow,

that's great!

Tomorrow I might manage to come but I'm not sure yet...if you decide to go for a shooting session I would eventually join. Otherwise let's try to organize something for Monday.

see ya

Hey x-bow,

I am cool for Saturday (tomorrow). If matthew23 can't come, we can go for some hoops. I will have to buy a ball, but I can do that in the morning.

Just let me know what time is good for you (tomorrow) so that I can align things with my girlfriend.

Re: Basel: basketball anyone?

Hi lost_inbroad,

If the weather is fine like today, probably at an outdoor court. Which court I don't know. I don't know which courts are good and which are bad. I have noticed that there are a lot of courts in Basel; it's a shame nobody plays there regularly (maybe winter is to blame).

If you want to join you are free to do so and if you have any recommendation on a court (indoor/outdoor) -- that will be also great.

cck

Re: Basel: basketball anyone?

Тhere are a couple of places where people gather to play in Basel. Dreirosenbrucke is one of them. The quality of the play is okay, but not great. People on a good day can be found daily though: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Dr...04262980?hl=en

Good luck.

Re: Basel: basketball anyone?

Hey.

In one of the previous posts I have pointed out that next to the Dreirosenbrucke there are 2 basketball courts and people are active there especially when the weather permits. The level of basketball is decent.

This is the link to the place:

Good luck in Basel!

Re: Basel: basketball anyone?

Hey guys. We've got a laid-back pick up game going at the Swiss International School in Kleinbasel on Mondays from 530-730. We're 6-8 and looking for a few more. Level of skill isn't too important but we prefer people who understand the rules! Right now ages 16-50. Just show up at the school ready to play indoors with clean shoes and ask for the gym. No game during school vacation.

Thank you

Do you mean 1730-1930 ? (just to be sure)

Are you playing next week ?
There is some difference in the vacations between the areas

See you
Ron

Re: Basel: basketball anyone?

Hi! I just saw the thread and, If it's possible, I would like to join you.
I played basketball centuries ago but It is always nice to have a friendly match to meet people and check if my muscles still working
Do you have a group, meetup.ch or something where you organize dates and times?

Greeting!

Hey everyone--thanks for your interest. But sorry--no more allowed! Orders of the boss...
