Indoor Full Court Format

  • Feb 1, 2014 · 5:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

We're trying out another new format this month here at BFTVC: All Full Court Evening. We'll have 3 teams of 7, with two subs, and rotate the teams around to play full court games all evening.

And as usual:

We rent out the gym from 5:00-8:00pm. 

Please arrive at least 5-10 minutes early as the sooner everyone arrives, the sooner we can begin playing. Note that all games stop at 7:45pm as we have to be out of the gym by 8:00pm. (If you get there late, please only ring the bell once. It is very loud! And it takes us a few minutes to get downstairs.) The gym is on the 10th fl. & has adjoining bathrooms, lockers, and water fountains.

We'll hit up McSwiggans (393 2nd Avenue @ 23rd St) later! 

Don't forget:

* You must be no more than 5'8" to play!

* You must RSVP on the site in order to attend!

* You will be asked to sign a waiver for 2014 as we're not a litigious group. 

If you have any problems with the prepay, just shoot one of the organizers an email.

Here are the basic rules we follow for games:

1. Play by ones and twos to 11 - win by one point.

2. Make it - take it.

3. Backcourt if the ball hits the rim or backboard. Air balls are fair game to put right back up.

4. Jump balls/disputed calls will be determined by a three pointer since the laws of basketball physics are very clear that "the ball never lies."

5. Walls, half-court line, and ceiling are out of bounds.  

6. Subs will enter the game no later than 6 points in (once one of the teams reaches 6 points). The sub will start the following game. Teams will regulate themselves but let's make sure everyone plays.

See you on the court! B-)


In an effort for us to reduce overcrowding and to maintain a more accurate estimate of how many people to expect, please sign up online if you intend to play. There is a waiting list if all spots have been taken. We ask that you please just do not show up unannounced as you will kindly be asked to turned away. 

Also feel free to bring your own basketball for shoot-around. And don't forget to clip your nails prior to game day. We tried playing with Edward Scissorhands once - it didn't turn out so well.


Share your Spotify playlists and tracks with us and we'll play them during gametime!

    I Just tried and it won't let me RSVP.

    January 30, 2014

    • Hadas

      sorry guys, i think the spots were already taken. i know there's a crazy wait! we're trying to figure out how to add more games, but in the meantime, you just have to sign up way in advance...

      January 30, 2014

    • Marc P

      yeah it looks like someone already was in the process of paying for the spot when you tried to get it. The system holds your spot for up to 20 minutes to make payment. unfortunately someone beat you there. Keep an eye out the next day or so. and maybe one will pop up...

  • Nicole S.

    Hey Marc!

    So I'm going out of town tonight but still planning on coming to the game tomorrow night. Would you be able to tell me what color I should bring??


    January 30, 2014

    • Marc P

      pick a color, i'll set you up for that team.. When in doubt, go black

      January 30, 2014

  • Ezron

    Hold on how did it go from 21 to 22 then back to 21 without it ever showing the RSVP button? I'm confused

      This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill - the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill - you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.

    Marc, I can't make this. I'm going to be away this weekend for some personal reasons. Can you move me to March 15 and open this spot up for someone else? Thanks!

    January 29, 2014

  • Rafael

    Hey so I'll actually be working on this Saturday so I changed my RSVP. Any way I could switch my 3 spots for the Full Court game on Feb 1?

    December 26, 2013

    • Rafael
