This Weekly Practice will be held on Mondays from 8:30pm to 10 at the Kennedy School (aka PFL Garden), 5 Cherry St. (Porter Sq), Somerville, MA

Directions and orientation: The Kennedy is a big school with many doors. Here is where you should enter: Directions and orientation: Enter the gym at the Kennedy School at Door #9 which is the side of the school opposite the big playground. (The big playground is the Elm St/Cherry St side.) That Door #9 is best accessed, if you are driving, from Sartwell Ave (which runs off Cedar which is one-way from Summer St). So, the best way to park close to that Door #9 is to get to Summer St. (which is a street parallel to and in-between Highland and Somerville Avenues), turn down Cedar, one-way, turn right into Sartwell, again one-way, and look for the doors on that side of the school, one of them says #9. And then the gym is right there. If you park in the big lot near the big playground (off Elm Street) you’ll need to walk up the steps in the corner of the playground and walk around the school and the door (#9) will be like right there! If taking the T, get off the Red Line at the Porter Square station, go up the long, long escalator, go outside, turn right and walk across the Porter Square Shopping Center parking lot. The street on the far side of the lot is Elm St. Turn right on Elm St., walk a block and the Kennedy School will be on your left. Walk through the parking lot, up the only stairs there, and go around the building to Door #9. The gym is right there!

About the gym: wood floor, six hoops, all of which are glass. 75-80′ long with a three-point arc and lots of floor space. Good lighting, though there’s a curtain that lets blinding light in at certain angles in the mornings. Bleachers for spectators at PFL and to toss your stuff. Overall we give it an 8 out of 10.
