The Fens

Dedicated hoopsters around town flock first to the Jim Bradley Courts at the Fens, where the trash-talking is superior, as is the talent that backs it up. You’ll find competition is as tough as you want it to be; the well-maintained courts attract multiple levels of players and more than a few spectators. Speaking of which, games aren’t the only eye-candy here—the location boasts an unbeatable view of the city.
