Hi guys, I am looking for a basketball team in Brussels to play 1-2 times a week. I am 29 years old (1.92m) and have been playing on/off for around 18 years now. Would be great if you could get in touch if you play yourself or know anyone.
Thanks for any advice!
There are clubs at almost every sports centre, so it depends very much on where you live, most are French speaking in Brussels. You'll find international players in the areas where you find international people living I suppose. Try using google, limiting it to near where you live or the name of the nearest sports centres.
My rowing club in North Brussels has a basketball section (also tennis, table-tennis and badminton as well as rowing). It has two teams who play in minor leagues ‘mostly for fun’. I think they have a match once a week and a training session once a week. We have an outdoor and an indoor court, a gym you can make use of (rowing machines and weights) and a very nice clubhouse with bar and food service. The basketballers are a pretty sociable bunch and regularly organise BBQs and other get-togethers. They are basically French-speaking although there are lots of English speakers amongst the rowers.
Address is 170 Chaussée de Vilvorde in Neder-Over-Heembeek (Brussels 1120). The 47 bus goes near, if you’re not a driver.
I find myself in pretty much the same situation now.
Did you find a team?
I live in the centre, so the rowing club would be too far.
I'm also looking for a club/team to play with. Just moved to Bxl and living in the European Quarter so looking for somewhere fairly central for either weekday evenings or weekends.
If somebody is still looking for a team, feel free to contact Wobac in Sint-Stevens-Woluwe (www.wobac.be, Mob. 0474/282.364).
