Basketball is one of London’s most loved sports and Merton is lucky to have many fantastic sports venues that cater for the sport. Residents in this south west part of the city can enjoy basketball at indoor and outdoor facilities. Most of the outdoor basketball courts are made from the concrete or macadam surfaces. Floodlights are present at some courts to let games go on through the winter months too. Basketball is the perfect way to keep fit and can even be played with two people if you’re short of numbers for a full match.
