The new format lives on: 50/50 Co-Ed Games. We'll open up 11 spots for men and 11 spots for women. And each team will have at least 2 women playing on the court at all times.
Sign up here if you're a dudette.
Or here: http://www.meetup.com/Basketball-for-the-vertically-challenged/events/161618622/ if you're a dude. (...If you don't identify as a dude or dudette, email us.)
Other than that, the idea will be basically the same:
We have the gym from 5:00-8:00. (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 later!
* 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!
