Adult Basketball

Adult Basketball is offered in t​he winter season with games played at various gyms throughout the city. Teams may carry up to 15 players. ​​​​​
COVID-19 Response:  Winter 2020/21 Adult Basketball League canceled. After much research, careful consideration, and discussion, we have made the difficult decision that we will not be offering winter basketball leagues this year.

This decision is based on the continued COVID-19 public health threat, the ability to ensure the leagues do not contribute to the spread of the virus, and guidance received from the Virginia Department of Health.

We understand this is disappointing, but we remain committed to returning to sports in the safest manner possible when it is appropriate to do so. We welcome small groups to play at our outdoor public courts. For locations, use the free VBParkFinder app. Additionally, the recreation centers will soon be offering online reservations for family basketball time in the gymnasiums. For more information and to register, visit VBgov.com/reopen (membership required).
