After the great success of the Lingerie Football League, a new form of organized, scantily-clad women’s sports is on the way: The Bikini Basketball League.
According to its website, the Bikini Basketball League for “Sexy Athletic Ladies” has been around since 2011, but there have not been any games yet. There are seven teams so far -- Atlanta Fleet Angels, Miami Spice, New York Knockouts, Hollywood Hotties, Orlando Lady Cats, L.A. Ice and Chicago Desire – with a few more slated to come. On Twitter, the league asked fans if a team should be in Philadelphia, asking fans to retweet if they want a Philly team.
The Bikini Basketball League will begin on Nov. 3, according to the website, and players, coaches, sponsors and the media are still welcome to join. The Miami New Times reported that tryouts for players will begin in Miami this weekend.
“Players will be chosen based on skills, personality, athleticism, drive, competitiveness and looks,” the flier reads. “Candidates expected to wear sports bra and shorts to try out.”
“This is a competitive basketball league, so we are definitely looking for girls that can really play,” a rep for the Miami team told the newspaper. “It is also a bikini league in which the girls will be playing basketball in bikinis, so looking good in a bikini is a must.”
“They can expect to sweat their hair out and have their basketball skills tested,” the rep continued. “Dribbling, shooting, passing, running, scrimmaging and more. We will also have a interview process where we ask them an array of questions to see if they have the mind-frame and personality that we seek.”
Football and basketball aren’t the only sports to have a sexy female league. According to NBC Sports’ Off The Bench, there is a Bikini Hockey League, which had two teams as of this year, and there was the AVP pro beach volleyball tour which ended in 2010.
What’s next? The Nude Baseball League?
