  • Pick-up games in Brisbane

    A few people have suggested I start this thread, so here you go.

    If anybody knows of anybody pick-up games in Brisbane, post details here pls. I'm sure there are a bunch that we all don't know about.

    Here's one I've been told about ...

    Where: Gregory Park, Baroona/Haig Rds Milton
    When: Saturdays 3pm

  • #2
    Friday 10am till 12:30pm

    May be a bit hard for most to get to but with an average of 30 players turning up there is always enough to go hard. $3 for entry. Fairly high standard with another three courts used for just shooting around.

      Brisbane Pick Up Games

      Sunday afternoon Brisbane runs I've been to:

      - Gregory Terrace on Water Street in Spring Hill, theres a full court fronting the road you can't miss it. Nice and competitive, very popular. I think all the guys that used to play at southbank ended up here.

      - Churchie, East Brisbane, usually a half court game going on at least.

      - Macgregor HS, Mt Gravatt, tons of asians, the 4 or so full courts they have here usually fills up.

      It'd be good if people could keep this updated cause it took me a while to find these runs!

          hibiscus is a good spot when they dont have other sports on.

          what's the best time there for pick up games?

              brisbane just needs an inner city 'venice beach' style setup.

              3-4 courts with quality backboards and rings. put it in a park. someone central for the ballers to hang!

              ill donate it if i win the lotto!

                When Surfers Paradise redo their broadwalk alone the beach it would be great if the council think to put 3 or four courts in. Dreaming or even at southbank somewhere.

                  i'd be happy to donate $50.. what do you reckon the chances of 2000 other people in brisbane doing the same. that'd be $100k. reckon its worth looking into?

                        Great Idea in Brissie but lets just make sure there are no gangsa and stuff starting as it needs to be a welcoming place for any basketballers. I got $50 for it so maybe you should start a face book group?

                        Gold coast sounds good but to close to the beach and the breeze will effect any ones jump shot even Nagas! Redcliffe have a court next to the water front and it has this problem.

                          crack - im gonna start a facebook group, ill let you know once i get it up.

                          good idea about the no gangsta. i think this would be ideal in a family oriented environment like southbank, roma street parklands etc etc - of course thats prime realestate so i dont know if bcc would let u slap down 4 full courts no matter how much cash you have.

                          it'd be also great if it was well lit for night balling...

                          the problem at the moment is most of the courts are various school grounds all over brisbane so no one knows where to get a game. if you have a central public spot itd be super easy to get a game
