In the search for best amateur basketball venues, for both boys and girls hoops, we figured the folks at the AAU would be great guides. The following people were kind enough to share their top six: AAU director of basketball Stan Quash, Jam On It Basketball Academy CEO Matt Williams, and AAU senior sports manager Kristy Sampson. 1. Disney’s ESPN Wide World of Sports, Orlando, Florida – “Twelve courts in one location, plenty of family-oriented things to do when you are not playing basketball, and who doesn’t like being in Florida?” - Quash 2. A-Game Sportsplex, Franklin, Tennessee -  “In Nashville, a rich music scene with 10 floors in two very close locations.
