Thursday Basketball Pickup at WCF

Join us for some of the best pickup basketball in Chicago. You'll get a ton of playing time in a well-organized event. Our host will check players in, divide players into teams, and make sure that everything runs smoothly. All you have to do is show up ready to play!
