What we're about

Calling all Central/East London ballers! This is a pick-up indoor basketball group for anyone who wants to play the game without committing to a team.

I want to make sure everyone gets decent time on the court, which is why...
a) Each session lasts for 2 hours and is limited to 15 people
b) We run 8-minute games with regular player rotations

Please read the event descriptions carefully.

Please also do not advertise other sessions on the public board. I have to pay for hosting this Meetup group and I want to avoid having people free-riding on it. Thank you for your understanding.

Indoor Basketball @ Stratford - 2 hrs - £8 per person

The Carpenters and Docklands Centre Gym



PLEASE CHECK WHETHER YOU'RE IN THE ATTENDANCE LIST AFTER YOU PAY VIA PAYPAL. The Meetup platform is sometimes missing out on these payments. I've raised it with them on high priority yet they didn't care a single bit and unfortunately I don't have a better solution at the moment.

NO MORE FREE PARKING INSIDE THE VENUE'S PARKING LOT! You can park on the road, costs £3 for 2 hours.


Advanced level players are welcome to this 2-hour indoor basketball session. That means you can run, dribble, pass, shoot, and understand the game of basketball. If you do not know how to play, or have limited playing experience, do not sign up. I reserve the right to dismiss players who do not meet a sufficient skill level as unskilled players have hurt the quality of play and caused risk of injury to themselves and others in previous sessions.

We play 5 v 5 full court games with constant rotation so that everyone gets to play a good amount of time.

The sports hall is conveniently located within 10 minutes' walk of Stratford station. Should be very easy to find with Google Maps, but please message me or post a comment if you get lost. The venue features changing rooms and shower facilities.

The fee for the session is £8 per person. You can choose to pay either via:

a) PayPal, or...
b) ...Bank transfer, in which case send me a private message and I will give you my bank account details.

Refunds are given under two situations:
1) You withdraw by 9 pm on Thursday.
2) You send me a private message with a reasonable excuse. I don't want to penalize last-minute changes in your schedule which you couldn't predict. Just please use common sense as our sessions are very popular.

A £2 fee will be charged for any cancellations. In other words, if you sign up and subsequently withdraw, you will receive £6 instead of the £8 you initially paid.

If you have any questions feel welcome to message me directly. Look forward to seeing you there!
