Pick-up games and basketball practice times

Enjoy pick-up basketball games, challenge your friends to a game of HORSE or just practice your free-throws with open recreation basketball at the Coors Fitness Center!

Attached to the fitness center is Gates Field House featuring full-length basketball courts. Most days feature open play times while Monday evenings are specifically reserved for pick-up games.

New in 2018: We now have three outdoor basketball courts available for pick-up basketball! Check in at the Coors Fitness Center front desk for more information.

Open recreation basketball and pick-up basketball games are available to all Coors Fitness Center members and full-time DU students for free.

 

 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 

Indoor Open Recreation Basketball

During open recreation times, at least one basketball court in Gates Field House is open for a variety of activities from basketball practice to pick-up games. Pick-up basketball games are welcome during open recreation times, but we also offer designated times for only pick-up games. Learn more below.

When Gates Field House is unavailable, players can now play basketball at our three outdoor courts at Stapleton Pavilion (weather permitting).

Pick-Up Basketball Games

From 6:00-8:00 p.m. on Mondays, Gates Field House is open for full court pick-up basketball games. It is open to full-time students and Coors Fitness Center members.

Players must check-in at the Coors Fitness Center front desk, then sign-up using the whiteboard in Gates Field House to be added to the player list.

How to Play

  • Games are “first-come, first-serve” basis.
  • The winning team stays on court until they lose. When the game ends, the next five players on the sign-up list are up.
  • Games are played to 11, win by two points.
    • Baskets made in front of the three-point arc = 1 point
    • Baskets made behind the three-point arc = 2 points
  • Violations are called by players and result in a side-out. No free throws are taken, and disputes are settled by a “shoot off.”
  • Shirts and soft-soled shoes must be worn at all times.
  • No fighting, taunting or aggressive play is allowed. Violation of this policy can result in removal from the games.

Outdoor Open Recreation Basketball

We’re excited to add three outdoor basketball courts beginning in October 2018!

The three courts, part of the Stapleton Pavilion outside of the Ritchie Center, are available all day (during Coors Fitness Center operating hours, weather permitting) for pick-up basketball games or just to shoot around.

All players must check in at the Coors Fitness Center front desk before playing. They must also have their membership card, DU student ID card or daily/guest visit receipt while at the outdoor basketball courts, and identification is subject to being checked by Coors Fitness Center staff. Courts are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
