Community Guidelines


As sports fans and athletes, we are all naturally part of a huge community. While our support differ from teams and cities from all over, we all enjoy the different experiences participating in sports offer i.e. competition, sportsmanship, teamwork, etc.

At Ballers List, we are happy to offer a platform for you to connect and participate in sports more efficiently. We understand competing at a high level could become heated, however we ask that you respect others at all times and abide by our guidelines.

Ballers List isn’t a place for explicit, abusive, harmful, hateful, or violent content or behavior. We want our guidelines to be easy to follow and we’ll do our best to consistently and fairly enforce these guidelines.
