Find basketball players in London and beyond

Finding basketball teams in London is no easy feat, particularly when you are new to the big smoke. There are literally 1,000s of basketball courts in London, dotted around the capital mainly in parks, leisure centres and schools. The quality of London basketball courts can vary enormously. Nowhere is this more apparent than in parks where the surface can be hit and miss depending on the level of investment from the local authority. School sites and leisure centres tend to be better quality but you usually have to pay more.

OpenPlay offers a free basketball court finder which already solves the headache of finding a basketball court near you. OpenPlay even lists basketball activities such as coaching sessions or drop in sessions. However finding other like-minded basketball players is far from easy for the public and remains a big obstacle for growing the game. This is why fewer games are played than could be and many of the London basketball courts lie idle when they should be used.
