I recently read about a charity basketball game between some Thai celebrities and a local team. I never knew there was a basketball team on the island. I have played competitive basketball for 11 years in my home country. But now that I live in Phuket, I play basketball only on a local school court when the weather is good. Is it possible to play competitive basketball for a team or take part in training even though I’m not Thai? Are there any try-outs? I’m very interested to know more about playing a higher level of basketball than just for fun.
