Shoot Some Hoops At The Basketball Court

Right near the outdoor gyms the outdoor basketball court is full sized with court markings. Bring your own ball and a few mates for a shoot around, or show up most afternoons for a game of pickup. The court runs north-south fortunately, so there’s no way to accidentally overshoot into the ocean.
