Sporting nights?

kate79 18 September 2007 3

After my previous success with the RiotAct recommendation machine, I’m looking for a few more tips.

I’ve been searching for a post-work basketball location, just to shoot around rather than play anything formal. Being usually dark post work, I’m looking for something indoors. The City YMCA used to be lovely for precisely this purpose, but now it’s a big AusAID office building and it’s rude to play basketball there.

My research so far (some details might be a bit dated):

A few dead-ends:

  • Belco stadium in Oatley court was booked nights for regular games;
  • ANU was first come/first served basis;

Any more suggestions? Is there anyone else who wants to have a shoot-around?

What's Your Opinion?

Indoor Sports Kambah hire out their courts at $5/head per hour. You can play just about anything on the netted court.

There are basketball courts at UC opposite building 10 (you can find a campus map on Not sure about the lighting situation though.

Back in my ball-playing days (pre knee, hip and ankle failure)a mate and I would just go to the Sports Training Hall at the AIS. It used to be unlocked most of the time as the various AIS ‘ball teams would be training or doing individuals.

They never hassled us as long as we moved on if a court was required.

I flat out refuse to pay for a casual shootaround.
