i'd say that's a lot more east than northeast. fishers is northeast imo and this place is 25mins south of fishers.

The location is very close to 465 and therefore very accessible. From Fishers you could easily be there in 15 with no traffic at 8pm on Thurs evening. 465 makes it a very convenient commute for many.

I reside in NE Indy near Pendleton; its 25 minutes for me.

What level of competition are we talking about?

Sorry missed your question. I want to open it up to as many as possible, but the guys i know are competitive. majority HS talent and some college level.

Age range from 21-35 with experience playing the game either recreationally or in HS/College. Hope that helps. Ive played in the Fieldhouse at Fishers and I would say a notch or two below that level. thats with refs, scoreboard, and league pay.

I'm very interested in playing, I'll admit that it has been a few months since I have last played so I will probably be a little out of shape. I played high school ball and intramural ball at Purdue.

I should be there this Thursday.

Should be very easy. You will notice Crossroads Bible church and then its on the side. Look for the cars.

Send me a PM with your number and I can give you a call to make sure you find it. I will send you my number is well to simplify.

Yes it was alot of fun and good exercise. Thanks again to all those who were able to participate!

Hope we can have the same kind of group this week as well, but at the same time we want to keep it to a reasonable number or else guys will have to sit for a long time and may stop playing.

With that said, I will let the thread be placed on the backburner, and we will continue playing on thursdays at 8pm.

for any new guys, follow the signs that say gym. its in the back but there are many cars there with church activities and such.

if ever you have a question please feel welcome to PM me and i will get back to you asap.

Thanks!

thanks man for letting me know. i have an upcoming exam for certification so i havent made it out the past two weeks.

Jeremi who runs it said the numbers were good the previous week. i will see if we can recruit some more players either on here or elsewhere.

Thanks pujhutt!!

i will text robertmto as well. he normally brings 3-4 players too.

i know we had 20 a couple weeks ago so ive avoided recruiting anyone else so that we do not get too many players.

PacersPride
02-22-2011, 07:16 PM
will anyone be able to make it from PD this week? i know the challenge is going on as well from the Pacers Front office league, and am concerned about numbers.

if not enough are interested we will shut it down. we had 15-20 for a few weeks and last week only 8. do not want folks showing up and only a few guys make it out.

Thanks

The gym will be open this week from 8-10. If anyone is interested in playing please leave a message here. even if you cannot make it leave a message if you are interested in playing some other time.

i havenet been able to recruit guys off of here and we have had good numbers up until recently.

anyone who plays regularly is welcome to organize the recreational play. my friend goes to the church and has the time slot reserved, its free. i think the gym is sufficient and if your in the area anyone is welcome.

normally someone is in there playing basketball because the church has other activities or whatnot going on.

im approaching a busier season so i wont be able make it every week, its about a 35 minute drive for me, and i play once a week in pendleton with a good solid group.

if anyone is interested in contacting me by phone send me a email on here and i can text as well for any updates to the gym on the eastside. my buddy plays there regualrely and is a very good friend.

he keeps it open.

Hope to see some of you out there sometime! Thanks.

* if anyone is interested in organizing something as a part of the PFOL challenge feel welcome to contact me and the gym will be open.

great! folks are welcome to bring more players as well, it doesnt have to be limited to PD unless more people start showing up and we get too many.

i really thought there would be more ballers on PD.. anyways, im always open to playing ball so if anyone has a better spot to meet or anything feel welcome to let me know.

im gonna be getting a team together for a Fieldhouse league on the NE side, if anyone is interested in playing feel welcome to contact as well.

Hope to see some of you tommrow night!

Hey all, I will be making it out tonight to ball. For those of you who come often I will have you meet the man in charge of the gym and exchange numbers etc.

were gonna get this setup so consistent players are the ones who get invited first, then we will have alternates from there. so again, feel welcome to leave a message if you are interested or contact me directly on here.

peace

Guys, I will not be playing ball on Thursdays for ahwile, but the gym will be open. Very busy at work, its a 35 minute drive for me and gas prices are getting high. i play once a week right now nearby.

Was hoping PD open gym would take off but not enough on here seem to be interested.

Only about 6 guys and those guys bring players. The gym will stay open, the guy in charge will always have about 4 or more players there, i have left everyone who messaged in the thread Jeremi's contact info. Feel welcome to contact me via PM if anyone has questions or anything and i will get back to you on here.

Thanks

For anyone interested in join this league we are starting sign ups now! Fallow this link to sign up. Spots are limited to the first 84 to sign up and pay. last season we had to turn down close to 20 people. We may expand to 2 more teams if we have a large number of new and returning players.

Sign up at: http://www.leaguelineup.com/welcome.asp?url=iab

For other info about our league you can contact me on here or through our Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/General-Tsos-Basketball-Association/148220001898021

Or at our offical web page: www.goGTBA.com

Some info about the league:
We play every Saturday between 1 and 6 at the Monon Center. Entry Fee for the next season is currently $35. We play around 8-10 regular season games and then a single elimination playoffs. This is quite possibly the most unique rec basketball league in Indy. We have a combine for new players, followed by league wide draft where captains select teams. Trades also happen mid-season. The level of competition ranges from D1/ Overseas Players to your mildly skilled open gym players. That is why we have a draft, it keeps the league very level and you must build real unity to win. We also keep stats and record all the games and post them to Youtube and a stats page. You can also count on the occasional GTBA top 10plays of the week and other things we put together when we get bored. The one thing you have to remember is that it is a rec league and we players and captains are expected to help out with video, reffing and stats. That is why we are able to keep the fees low.

Feel free to contact me with any questions.

i will look into it. not sure. we are going to need up to 5 guys max for a new site were playing ball at.

as far as this location goes i will let you know. this spot is too far of a drive for me to attend; but as i stated will let you all know if my buddy is still running games out there.

** If anyone would be interested in playing ball competitively near Anderson let me know. we run at a church and go 12-15 deep every week. numbers have been at 11 the past two weeks and were looking for new comp. only need 3-4 guys at most at this point.

its 4 bucks to play at a local church on the south side of anderson. if anyone is interested please email me or post here.

this is for serious ballers only.

thank you

I would def be interested in hooping in Anderson. I need to hit the gym a time or 2 before I come out, but only bc I havent touched a basketball in easily 6 months and im terribly out of shape.

I consider myself a serious baller (when im actually playing) and I could probably round up a guy or 2. I know Since86 is a hooper too (way better than I am) , maybe I could get him to roll out there with me sometime. Ill get back to the thread in a week or so, after I knock the rust off a bit.
