    I will most likely be moving to Ostrava to play basketball in Sept. I have heard that sports are pretty popular there but I havent heard anything about basketball. How popular is basketball in the Czech Republic?

    Basketball is not very popular in our country. It belongs to the same category like: volleyball, handball, water polo etc. They have some fans but the majority considers these sports to be rather boring. A score like 87:86 :) cannot attract big attention (perhaps only by its absurdity).

    Like water polo? No, it is'nt so wrong, Zeisig :D.

    Basketball is common part of physical education at schools and it's quite usual avocational sport. Yes, professional basketball is less popular and has only little publicity. Suprisingly, woman basketball is more popular. Maybe it's the most popular woman sport in the CR.

    Hi yall !!

    I live in Prague, love playing basketball.

    But I found there are only few Czech guys like playing basketball.

    I'm looking for some basketball players to play with.

    I live in Prague6, Maly Brevnov.
