The city of Buenos Aires in Argentina is full of basketball players who are looking for new outdoor places to play every day. If you are one of them, or you are just visiting the city, we show you the five best basketball courts in Buenos Aires.
Without a doubt, “La Copita” is the best known court in the city. Also called “Manu’s court“, due to the large gigantography of the Argentine idol Emanuel Ginóbili that is painted on the floor.
The court is located in Saavedra, a quiet neighborhood, without many buildings, where the afternoons are longer since there is nothing to block the sun. We can find matches of all kinds: 3v3, 5v5, half court, or full court.
It has lighting at night, which means that there are people from very early until late at night. Due to the large number of people who attend, the teams must wait on the sides of the field until the game ends.

Next to the Caballito station of the Sarmiento railway, there is another of the most famous courts in the city. It is a caged court in very good condition, with chain nets, with very easy access and a very good location.
The court and the park are open every day, until 10:00 p.m. Children, youth and adults meet daily to have fun outdoors, enjoy the sun and play sports. In addition, eventually, a teacher gives free classes for all ages and all levels.
The Colegiales neighborhood Sports Center field, open Monday to Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. and Saturdays, Sundays and holidays from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
It is one of the most popular and crowded courts in the city, due to its excellent condition, despite the years.
During the Pandemic, the field could only be used by taking turns through the Internet page, so the number of people who attended was lower. Over time this was ending and currently no shift is needed.
Renovated at the end of 2021, this court is open from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on weekdays, and all day on weekends. It is located in the neighborhood of Parque Patricios, in the Plaza de Uspallata and La Rioja.
The field is surrounded by all the nature of the park, which causes a cool climate, perfect for playing. It has great lighting that allows intense night games.
In the neighborhood of Villa Urquiza, next to the Pueyrredón station of the Miter railway, there is another of the most famous courts in the city. Like the previous court, it recently underwent a restoration, in which the floor was repainted, and the hoops were improved.
The court is fenced off to provide a sense of privacy as well as contain the ball. It also has good lighting for night games.
Despite its great care and maintenance, it is not one of the busiest courts, although there will never be a lack of people to play good games.
