    Adult Basketball In Ames

    Fellow Fanatics, I am back living in the Ames Area (was constantly traveling for work previously) and I am looking for a place adults can go and play basketball. I know there are plenty of facilities on campus but all seem to be for college students. I am wondering are there many places for a guy to find a pick-up game or a summer basketball league? I would appreciate your help because I love the game just don't want to play with kids that are in wayyyyy better shape then I.

    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Re: Adult Basketball In Ames

    I'm not sure if this helps you but if it does I think City Hall has adult leagues.

    Edit:
    Actually it looks like college kids can play in it so I'm not sure this is what you are looking for. Sorry, I tried. Lol

    I saw that on the city of Ames Website, unfortunately I don't know enough people in Ames to get a team together.

    There is pickup basketball at the Community Center on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 6:30am-7:30am. I believe it costs $1.50 to get into the facility each time.

    There is pick up at The Plex in north Ames weekday mornings 6am-7am, but that might be pushing it to get to Des Moines by 8.

    How about you guys organize a time and place, seems like there is probably enough interest out there to get 10 of you.

    I am sure we could get enough guys for a pickup game here or there. Problem is where would we play?
