Agreed. It's all about the tournament making more $$$, if you can fit two courts where there should only be one, more games = more $$$.The other factor in AAU ball for the average kid (not the superstars) is the side-by-side games (so that they can get more games in simulataneously); many games are not played in safe conditions for both player and fan.
AAU should have/enforce some standards for court sizes, lines and space between courts/walls, space for spectators etc. But I can see how this is difficult to do and AAU doesn't seem like they have much infrastructure to do this.
It's too bad there isn't someplace online to look at for feedback/reviews on every AAU club and every AAU tournament and every court used by AAU tournament organizers.
