    Places for Pick Up Games-Basketball

    Hey guys. My name is Evan and I play basketball at a small NAIA school here in Iowa. I will be doing an internship in Des Moines this summer and had been planning on playing in the Capital City League until I had surgery to repair a torn meniscus in April. I was wondering if anyone knew of any pick up games around the area. I plan on getting a YMCA membership so I can play in-doors and continue some work outs. So if anyone knows of any pick up games I can get in, any information would be nice. Thank you.

    The Ankeny YMCA opens up to the high school gym on Wed nights and Sunday afternoons. I have not played in the games but from what I hear it is a pretty good place to find a game.

    Aspen health club in urbandale has really good competition. Theres a lot of former college guys and guys still in college that play there. Does anyone remember Howard Eaton. He plays there. He was a former all big 8 defensive team guy

    Re: Places for Pick Up Games-Basketball

    Some teachers and other random people in Martensdale play Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 6am. Kind of early I know. But for people that work early and have families, it's really the only good time to play. It's about a 10 minute drive from West Des Moines. There are a few people that played college ball that come. Not too tough, but a good time.

    I don't mind playing games outside, just need to find the right place.

    I'm in!!

    I was playing with a group of guys that rented out one of the Middle school gyms a couple hours a week but I'm not sure they are continuing through the summer.
