Basketball Courts

Speaking of churches, did you know that every church of the Latter Day Saints (the Mormons) has a basketball court in it?

(Don't confuse the church with the big bad-ass temples - the church is a small local meeting place that is shared by several "wards". A ward is a geographical grouping of followers that more-or-less run themselves with a mostly lay administration.)

How cool is that? How often are they used? Do they use it as a recruiting tool?

Enquiring minds want to know.

p.s. Did you know that the Matterhorn at Disneyland has a small half-court basketball court in it? Huh, did ya? (Visit the link for some happy music.)
