  • Adult pick-up basketball takes place in the St. Pius X gym every Sunday night from 8-10 p.m., which works out best with 10 to 15 players each week to play full-court. Fouls and violations are called by offense or defense. We play by 2’s and 3’s to 15, with the winner staying on the court for the next game. After 2 games in a row, the winners leave the court. Bring two shirts (no gray), or a reversible basketball shirt. We ask for a $2 donation each time we play. Even if you haven’t played in a long time, or not at all, you are welcome to join us--it's very fun! The more you play, the easier it gets.
