Albany Adult Basketball League

When: Sundays, 6-9 p.m. Continues through July 24 2011

The city of Albany offers men's and co-ed softball teams, a kickball league, and drop-in women's soccer games -- but basketball has been absent from the roster. Until now. Starting Sunday, June 5, local basketball enthusiasts can finally hit the courts as part of the city's new co-ed adult recreational basketball league. "We're trying to create a friendly league that's really inclusive of everyone," said Heather Robinson, the city's adult sports coordinator. "Basketball has a history of getting physical and rough, and we want to avoid that and create a fun and safe environment for people." Teams will play four-on-four games due to the size of the UniversityVillagegym (1123 Jackson St., Albany), with a minimum of six games in the first season. Sundays through July 24. 6-9 p.m., $40. 510-559-7216 or
