There aren’t many options to play pick-up basketball as you may be used to in your home country.  However, one way to play is at your school with the students.  Check to see if you school has a basketball team (most do) and ask the coach if you can practice with them.  The students really enjoy playing with you and it’s a good way to get involved. 

Contact the school(s) around your area.  Sometimes on weekends when the gym isn’t being used by the sports teams, the gyms at some schools are available to the community.


In 2007, Rizing Fukuoka joined the Japanese Professional Basketball League in it’s third season.  For the official team roster and schedule, please visit the official home page:  http://rizing-fukuoka.com/ (Japanese)
