Women take a social slam dunk
SOCIAL sports have become the new “in thing” and a Coast basketball club have endeavoured to take a dunk at it.
A women’s social basketball team is under construction at Caloundra, and they’re on the lookout for interested players to take the quest for the net.
Social basketball is like normal basketball, but the competitive edge of the sport is slightly less ambitious with players opting to learn the rules as they go.
Caloundra Basketball Association president Wade Avery said it was ideal for those who haven’t played in a while and want to play in a mixed team in a social setting.
“It’s almost like a gap in the market,” he said.
“It’s a great way to keep fit, develop teamwork skills and socialise in an enjoyable environment.”
Mr Avery currently holds free one-hour women’s social skills sessions at Caloundra Indoor Stadium for those who want to brush up on their give-and-go.
He said the club was currently doing it without funding, but would search for alternate avenues once players start to dribble in.
