You know what I was thinking to myself the other day? I thought, There are not enough bikini sports leagues out there! I want to see more women in bikinis playing soccer, basketball, and baseball! Where are the bikini sports leagues?!

Well, worry not: The official Bikini Basketball League is coming your way and tryouts begin this weekend in Miami.

An official rep told the Miami New Times, "This is a competitive basketball league, so we are definitely looking for girls that can really play. It is also a bikini league in which the girls will be playing basketball in bikinis, so looking good in a bikini is a must."

Those who make the team make a big commitment: In addition to practices, games, and bookings, the team will participate in community events, giveways and promotions. The first season will kick off in 2013.

What do you think about bikini sports leagues? We had the chance to see the Minnesota Valkyries (a pro football lingerie team) in action, and those ladies train hard at football. No one can say they're not athletes. Plus, on the one hand, wearing lingerie on a football or basketball court isn't much more revealing than what cheerleaders or pro dancers wear on the sidelines. And clearly, if a Bikini Basketball League is being created, it's filling a demand that already exists.

On the other hand, women are also capable of playing sports just as well as men are while fully clothed. Why can't we encourage athleticism in women and young girls without having to emphasize the sexuality of their bodies?

What are your thoughts on this? Would you join a bikini sports league? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
