If youre past your athletic prime, but can still play some, theres a problem with hoops leagues: They tend to be either filled with young guns who have plenty of attitude, or populated with rec ballers who really cant play. The St. Pete Beach league overcomes this issue with a minimum age limit that keeps out too much raw talent. (You dont see very many dunks in these games.) There are still plenty of good players, though. Some of the younger guys can really bring it, and the long-in-the-tooth fellas can usually shoot and pass well. The play is by and large clean, but never dainty; theres plenty of defense (unlike a lot of run n gun leagues) and overall theres pretty good competitive balance. Plus, theres a bonus for oldsters: the St. Pete Beach gym has a short court. 7701 Boca Ciega Drive, St. Pete Beach, 727-363-9245.
