PickUp Basketball

What is PickUp basketball?

PickUp Basketball offers fun and affordable pay-as you-play sessions for people looking to get active through basketball, or for those who are looking for a non-competitive way to get back in to the game. The PickUp sessions are aimed at those who just enjoy the occasional game of basketball in a friendly environment, those who cannot commit to playing competitively or those wanting to take up the sport from scratch.
