Default OT: Where do you guys play ball?

Just wondering where you guys play ball. Anyone ball in the Toronto area? Any good outdoor courts?

I wanted to go but I have a wedding to go to this weekend.

I played in the London one a couple of summers ago. It's a lot bigger than the Toronto one.

i did the london one for about 5 years (live there), but haven't the last 2.

it's a good tourny. we actually get two big time tournaments cause we got gus macker as well. fun time of year if you're into that. i'm just to lazy these days.

as for where i play. on my driveway or behind some grade school that has wicked courts.

p.s. if anyone went to the london one the last couple years, i think it was on the western fair ground, which sucks.

they went back to downtown this year i believe. great atmosphere around victoria park.

you get guys from detroit a lot too. my team played a group three years ago. fukking pricks. got in a fight with another team later too.

yeah i did it last year too...i dind't mind the western fair grounds....it was kinda good that everything was inside...but eventualy it just started to reak in there.......and i've done the toronto one..and it was the first time i've ever seen a lunch break for all the games..and having the courts deserted

last year i played these giant 6-6 dudes in the semis...i was late on switch..and got alley-ooped on....twice

the best story for me was a couple years ago in toronto...we were playin these sick dudes..i guess they were on some team cuz they had a coach with em...but like..u know those games where it just surrounded by people...it was like that..but everyone there was against us....some dude even kicked the ball while it was in play..and we almost got into a fight with the crowd...we lost by 1

When I played it was at the Western fair grounds as well. Downtown would have been nice though.

I never played in Gus Macker. I wanted too though...but something always came up that weekend.

How is London nowadays? It was great for school, but the rest of the town sucks.

One of my friends was on the winning Hoop it Up team this past weekend.

Did any NBA'ers drop by this year?? I remember hearing about Mo Pete coming to it one year.
