Girls Playing Basketball Just Got A Lot More Interesting
The WNBA isn’t all that interesting, but it might be if they played their games on a beachside court in bikinis rather than in an arena with jerseys on.
VeniceBall has been going on for a decade now on Venice Beach in California to celebrate 1990s era basketball on the historic Venice Beach basketball courts. The annual event consists of a handful of games including a ladies bikini dunk competition that’s more entertaining than any women’s basketball game I’ve ever seen.

Although the girls who competed in the contest are clearly less talented than the professional athletes in the WNBA, it’s still worth watching. Judging by the videos from the event, it appears that the goals were lowered significantly to give the girls an opportunity to put on a show, but the real attraction was their attire.
Even on a seemingly seven to eight-foot goal, these girls weren’t exactly able to throw down, but they looked pretty good out there on the court. However, a few of the contestants landed some pretty impressive dunks, which is a lot more than I can say of the WNBA.
Someone should have figured this out a long time ago, because bikinis and basketball go pretty damn well together.
