First it was football players in lingerie -- now the ladies are headed to the hardcourt in bikinis.

The Chicago Desire will be just one of at least seven teams in the Bikini Basketball Association, set to debut  next summer.

Each team will have 14-21 women on the roster, and league officials say the players will be chosen based on skill, personality, athleticism, drive, attitude, competitiveness, and of course, looks.

The Desire is hosting team tryouts on October 13th at Sheridan Park (910 S. Aberdeen) at 1 p.m.

Candidates are asked to wear shorts and a sports bra and to bring a bio and resume with photos.

The league also has teams in NY, LA, Miami, Atlanta, Hollywood, Minnesota and Orlando.
