This group is for anyone interested in playing pickup basketball indoors in Barcelona. It will be a chance to play informal games each week and meet new people who love basketball.
The games will be informal pick up games, where we choose teams each week. There will be no referees, everyone will be expected to call their own fouls and play fairly. The games are played at a high level and are suited for players with experience playing organized basketball. They are fast paced and physical (within the rules), so perspective players should plan accordingly.
We play at CEM Nova Icaria and there will be a small cost each week to pay for rental of the court space. Each week will be limited to 15 players to ensure that everyone gets ample playing time.
Come play basketball at CEM Nova Icaria at 20:30. The format will be the same as in the past, 5 versus 5, with teams rotating after each game.
If you are on the waiting list at the time of the event, you are unfortunately unable to play.
Level: These games are not for beginners. You need to experience playing organized basketball. Most players have played on teams for many years and the games are fast paced and physical.
Cost: The cost will depend on how many people come and play to ensure that the cost of the gym rental is cover. It will be around 6-8 euros.
CANCELLATIONS: If you find you are unable to make it and have RVSP'ed "YES", please change your RSVP to "NO". Please change your RSVP as early as possible, so that others are able to join us.
If you no-show (which means you RVSP "YES", but then do not show up and do not change your RSVP to "NO") two times, unfortunately you will no longer be able to play with us. It is also considered a no-show if you change your RSVP later than 10AM on Tuesday.
Finding the courts: The basketball court is right behind the reception desk when you enter the gym. We will have a court blocked off to play on.
You access the courts by the stairs next to reception, then pass through the changing rooms.
Sometimes the map function in Meetup does not work correctly; so to find the gym, the best method is to put the address (Avinguda d'Icària, 167, Barcelona 08005) into Google Maps.
