Ya, just show up and play alright, people normally get there around 6.45 and shoot around and warm up.

Hi All myself and my friend are looking to play some basketball in Dublin 2, 4, 6 area. We used to play in school and college, but not so much in the last couple of years. Do you know any ladies/ mixed teams, leagues or clubs in the area?

Many thanks!!

Hi there's a few games on around Dublin.
Ringsend Fridays and Sundays, on in Sportsco, the standard has gone a little higher in the last while, but it's very casual, nobody takes it too seriously and there's a few girls playing.
Wednesdays at 7pm in the IFSC, mixed game, pints after quite often I hear!
Wednesdays at 9pm in Bray, again a mixed game.

Most of the organising is done through the facebook pages as it's easier, and each night is open to new people, there's a wide range of skill and fitness at all of them.

Hi all, I'll be re-locating to Dublin for work from the US by the end of February and basketball is a huge part of my life. Although it is not the main sport watched or played in IE, I am truly passionate about the game. I just requested to join some groups via Facebook from the links above. I'd love to participate in some pick-up games. Hope to meet you all sometime!

Thanks in advance,
Anthony

Yes I did, thanks. I've been added to the Facebook groups "Basketball Bray - North Wicklow, South Dublin & Beyond" as well as "IFSC Basketball, Wednesday, Dublin1"

Just got to the Dublin 2 area a few mins away from Grafton and still learning the area. Hopefully I'm near the locations mentioned in Facebook.

Thanks again.

You aren't anywhere near Bray but you are quite near the IFSC location and join this group for the Ringsend games which you are also relatively near: http://www.facebook.com/groups/173972555961507/
