Basketball

This co-ed sport is 5 aside, with a minimum of 2 male and female players on the court. We play on a full sized basketball court. Streetball or ‘street basketball’ is a variation of basketball typically played on outdoor courts. Featuring significantly less formal structure and enforcement of the game's rules, it’s where legends are made, laughs are had, and losers don’t exist. The game honours all of the traditional basketball rules, but our professional onsite coaches mean if you are learning, you can expect to finish the season with plenty more skills.  

We currently host 2 Streetball leagues in Sydney. One in Stanmore on Mon nights, and one in Moore Park on Wed nights.

Top 5 Reasons

To Join A Team

Play because you are new to Sydney, or looking to upgrade your friendship circle.

Urban Rec is the best place to meet people in a non awkward way. Live like you’re forever young, always meeting new rad people. Never let the fun stop. 

Play because you are majorly time poor.

Finding time for friends and exercise is tricky, why not do both? Grab your mates and make a team, then each week you have the chance to catch up, work out, and enjoy a cheeky beer post game. 

Play to stay active and fit. If going to the gym and running on a treadmill is your idea of some crazy hell, then Urban Rec social sports is the answer for you.

Chasing a ball frantically is the best way to break a sweat, and fit in your daily workout. 

Play because you love the idea of playing and trying new sports, but you are pretty sure you might suck.

Urban Rec offers beginner friendly, recreational leagues where all skill levels are welcome. Theres still some healthy competition, but no one is taking themselves too seriously. 

Play because you love sports. Speaking of love, maybe you'll meet someone who makes you smile.

Designer

I started to find the only way I was seeing my friends was over drinks, and I thought it would be great to get us all together for a bit of fun every week, something different.   We all love that it’s super social rather than serious and competitive. We still end up at the pubs after the game, but we work for it!
