¿Quieres jugar básketbol (baloncesto) después de clases?


Explanation:
This is obviously targeted to young peolple so the informal is appropiate. Also, depending on the country, you could find a "young people slang" way of saying this, (in PR they say baloncesto or básket)i.e.:

¿Te echarías un jueguito de baloncesto ( o "básket") despues de clases?(PR)

¿Qué te parece jugar el básket despues de clases (la escuela)?


Just find a phrase appealing to the target readers.

¿Quieres/Quiere usted jugar baloncesto? Never "baket ball"...


Explanation:
Rei is OK as long as you want to use the second person sigular informal (that'd be "tú"). But if you want to use the second person singular formal (that'd be "usted") the same as Carolanne, then you have to specify the pronoun. You see, the form "quiere" might as well refer to "él" or "ella".

¿Quieres jugar al baloncesto después del cole?


Explanation:
The target of this sentence is young people, and that's why I would write "cole" (a coloquial way to refer to "school", at least in Spain).

¿jugamos baloncesto después de las clases?


Explanation:
Jugamos es más familiar que el típico calco de la pregunta en inglés. Los niños en nuestro idioma son más ¨inclusivos¨de sí mismos a la hora de jugar.

Espero le sea de ayuda.
