Tournament courts are in the heart of downtown Boise

In 2012, we moved Fast Eddy’s BAM Jam’s location to the heart of downtown Boise next to Capitol Park. And we haven’t looked back since.

Tournament courts are all located right
in downtown Boise

The tournament location takes advantage of streets that are covered by trees and in the shade and Capitol Park, which is the ideal place to relax before and after your games. The park also features food vendors and some fun booths for your enjoyment.

Want to venture outside the tournament area? Downtown Boise has you covered. The tournament is located next to Old Boise, which features great shopping and dining. You can grab a sandwich at Jimmy Johns, a meal at The Reef or the Front Door or stop in to Pita Pit for a quick and healthy pita.

The tournament is also next to a farmer’s market, showcasing some of the best local produce and products the area has to offer.

Once you are at the tournament, you really don’t need to leave! Here’s a Google map of the location.
