Holton touted the success of the first-ever YMCA adult basketball league, which is now in the playoffs with a championship game scheduled for Monday, May 17, at 7 p.m. A second league will begin immediately after the conclusion of the first adult league.

This new adult basketball league will have two separate divisions — one “open division” for any players 19 or older, and a second division for players at least 30 years of age or older. Any player registered to play in the 30-and-up division is eligible to play in both divisions. Each team in each division can have a maximum of 10 players and a minimum of seven players on each team, with entry fees set at $30 per player.

There will be an eight-game regular season, followed by a playoff week and a league championship. The first regular-season games are scheduled for June 3, and registrations are now being taken at the YMCA front desk. For more information, call Holton at (229) 243-0508.



For the first time, the YMCA will also be offering a nine-hole golf league, with each week featuring different playing formats.

Matches will be held at the Bainbridge Country Club on Thursdays at 5 p.m., from May 23 through June 27. The registration fee is $15 for YMCA members and $20 for non-members, and these fees will go toward prizes and rewards at the end of the league. There is also a $100 league fee, which includes cart and green fees and is payable to the Bainbridge Country Club, for non-club members. Club members will instead pay a $10 fee every week, for green fees and cart.

Each golfer will need to submit his or her 18-hole handicap or provide an average score.
