Hi Ben

I didn't get a chance to measure the hall, but size is approx 4 basketball courts set up side by side and height is good. I'll try to check it out next week.

Maybe you and Peter "rabbitangler" could speak via PMs and come up with a couple of easy games with hoops etc for the day if you like? That might be good fun :wink

Cheers

Hall should be fine as long as Aberdeenshire basketball courts conform to the usual dimensions.

Got this info


Length of a basketball court
94 feet (1128 inches)
Note: Many high school and college courts are 84 feet.

Width of a basketball court
50 feet (600 inches)

Hi Ben

Yes, that would make the hall approx 200 ft long and about 95-100 ft wide :z3

 :cool:

By my rough calculation, it should just about be big enough to cast distance diagonally  :grin
