8. The Sydney Basketball Group

Although not as popular as other group plays in Australia, basketball is still a great sport and lots of fun… for those who love the game! If you are one of these individuals in or around Sydney – this group is for you. If you would like to play it periodically, know some playing courts and would like to organize some plays around your suburb, just let them know. The type of games would mostly be determined by the organizers when setting up the event, on-demand, or on the spot after seeing who has made it to the meetup – so a game can be anything from practice shoots, half court or whole court games. This group welcomes one and all, with no gender or any other bias.
