Pick-up basketball games in Newcastle?

Hey guys, I am here in Australia till mid March and want to know if there are any local casual basketball players who get together every evening to play basketball in Newcastle? I know basketball is not big in this country hence I am posting this on this forum to see if I could get some help. Thanks

I'm not in Newcastle, but might be worth dropping by the Newcastle Basketball site and seeing if you can find a team in a social comp, or just get a list of venues from them where you can shoot around and try find guys to scrimmage with:

Get down to the Broadmeadow Basketball stadium, you are sure to find something or someone will know. Basketball is not huge like America but it is probably bigger than you think. Ben Simmons grew up in Newcastle and learnt to play in this stadium so go for it.
