10th Arrondissement, Paris
Paris, a city where basketball has been brought back to its roots. Each neighbourhood competing to hold court over the others, pushing the game forward with every crossover and dunk.
The suburbs ballers coming into the city with their different style of game, rivalries between arrondissements being battled out. It is competition at its best, where all teams believe the grind of the game makes them better, sharpening their skills
South London is known as one of the best places in the UK for ballers. Not only does the city’s rich street style capture people’s attention, so do the ballers in the parks, with their gritty swagger on the court.
If we are talking Brixton basketball, we have got to talk about the Brixton Topcats, South London’s premier Basketball Club. It is soaked in a rich heritage and has a long-standing status within the community.
The club was started back in 1985 by the late Jimmy Rogers, one of the most recognizable coaches in the world.
