My only gripe about UCSB

<p>Any public basketball courts around? I dont think I could live without playing basketball...</p>

<p>haha, same here with soccer</p>

<p>there are public courts for basketball. look at Isla</a> Vista Recreation & Park District There are also intramural leagues on-campus; see Rec</a> Sports: Intramural Sports</p>

<p>the basketball courts are next to the rec center plus there are more right behind of COSTCO.</p>

<p>Hi Alex. There are outdoor basketball courts adjacent to Santa Cruz Residence Hall. There are also plenty of courts in the Recreation Center and the Thunderdome (indoor courts).</p>

<p>There are also basketball courts in Girsh Park, near the Costco shopping center. It's a great place for a BBQ.</p>

<p>There are also small parks in Isla Vista (I.V.) with basketball courts.</p>

<p>Given your high interest, I'd definitely join intramural basketball =)</p>

<p>they are literally courts everywhere</p>

<p>If you live in Santa Catalina Residence Hall (previously Fransisco Torres) there is one located right outside.</p>
