Sogang University

Sogang University has a lot of things going for it. There are easy-to-use tennis courts. There's a huge playing field (that stays pretty busy). And let's not forget about the basketball courts.

The Scouting Report

Sogang University has two full-sized basketball courts. The courts have a great color scheme, but the actual surface isn't the greatest.


It is similar to Mangwon's surface. It is a bunch of plastic tiles fitted together. The grip is decent, but your ball will take a beating. Expect your ball to get scratched up. Word of advice: don't bring an expensive ball.

The basketball court


  • The courts have a great color scheme. The art department must have designed them.
  • There are 2 full-sized courts.
  • The courts have excellent lighting.
  • The courts stay busy. Plenty of pick-up game action.


  • The surface is weak. It is a ball killer.

Extra Info

  • Looking for a place to chill after the game? Both Sinchon and Hongdae are close by. Itaewon is easy to get to. It is just a few stops down the nearest subway stop, line 6.
