hey bros (or sis)

are you a hoops fan?

The last time I laced my sneakers was probably 14 years ago... These days I'm resigned to watching the black mamba win his rings on telly. However, the doctor told me my BMI's pre-obese, so I really need to move my ass off the couch.

so I've been shooting hoops over the past couple of Sunday mornings at Victoria Junior College. They have pretty decent courts and they are empty. It gets boring shooting alone after a while, especially when the ball missed/bounces the other way and there is no one to rebound Laughing

anyone staying on east side, if you want to get some sweat and prefer ball games to running/jogging. Let's play some pick up games or at least help each other shoot balls for.

Just trying my luck, PS

thanks jake! tampines is within my driving distance for sunday evening. Can give address to park? I better buy shoes with proper ankle support Very Happy

mowen, can you recommend a coach at east side? I stopped playing tennis in 1994 Embarassed It will be my sport when my joints are too weak for basketball.

Excuse me... But I think both sports are similarly strenuous... You would be better off picking up swimming or aquarobics heheheh...

bros...an update. where i stay now has a decent basketball half court. it's nearby fort road/mountbatten

so no issue with parking (free) and no issue with school security guard anymore.

anyone wanna play on weekend afternoons...lets play 1 on 1 or 2 on 2 etc.......until our knees buckle.

I am inspired by Grant Hill and Steve Nash, bought new spalding balls already.

i usually play at Tanjong Rhu every fortnight with my friends.

However, I don't mind if there are some people here who would be interested to play on another fixture.

Bookies not included.

Many Thanks.
