LGBTQ+ basketball returns to Seattle!

Dear All - I'm really excited to share with you all that LGBTQ+ and friends basketball is returning to Seattle. We have re-united and established a board of directors with the mission of building a sustainable LGBTQ+ and friends basketball organization. We plan to hold league play year-round complemented with fun tournaments and social gatherings. We want to be more than just a basketball league, we want to build community and provide for safe and welcoming space for folks to get active, meet new people, and enjoy basketball.

As Seattle has continued to grow over the past few years, obtaining gym space had become a barrier for LGBTQ sports organizations. When the Asian Resource Center changed ownership and closed the gym to us, we were left without a place to play. Several attempts at using community centers and local schools failed as other organizations and leagues took precedent on the schedule.

That all changed when a new facility in Renton opened and invited us to be an anchor tenant with a permanent time slot on Sunday's from 6pm to 9pm. The Lair Courts (3405 Lind Ave SW, Renton) is a 30,000 sq ft sporting facility that has up to 6 volleyball courts or up to 4 basketball courts. Our sister organization - The Seattle Volleyball Club ran into the same issue with gym space and they are now holding their league play Friday nights and their numerous tournaments at The Lair Courts.

We welcome players from all walks of life and playing ability. We'll help you learn the game of basketball and get you on the court in a fun, competitive way.

Spring League begins this Sunday, April 15, 6pm-9pm, at The Lair Courts (3405 Lind Ave SW, Renton). Registration is now open (and filling up fast)! For more information on joining one of our leagues or our special events, visit http://www.seattlebasketballclub.org.

Cheers,

Ted Hanson
Seattle Basketball Club
