Basketball Open Gym, Sundays 5-7pm at Crown Heights location

Basketball Open Gym

CROWN HEIGHTS: Sundays, 5-7pm

Join us as we fight the Sunday scaries with some pick up basketball. This is a basketball open gym for all levels of play. Facilitated by Marion Lozano and Alison Newell, two Brooklyn gals looking for any excuse to play more basketball.

We will meet at the basketball courts on the entrance level of Major Owens Health and Wellness Center (one floor up from Brooklyn Community Pride Center).
All are welcome!
We’ll be using the first few weeks to gauge interest, determine the varying levels of play, and develop a structure that works for all participants. We don’t keep score and our goals are to work on our game and to build community.
We’re here to have fun and create a space that is as much about socializing as it is about basketball! Reach out if you have any questions:

Programming note: on Sunday, September 25, we will meet from 6-8pm instead of the usual time.
