Midnight Basketball League Returns

The Mayor’s office — in conjunction with several local entities interested in focusing the energies of city youth during the summer months — has announced the return of nighttime basketball in the City of Providence.

The Midnight Basketball League will consist of 24 teams, meeting in four locations throughout the City. Games will be played every Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 9pm to midnight at courts at Bucklin Park, Davis Park, Gano Park and Davey Lopes Recreation Center.

Games start in early July. (The Recreation Department is a little short on details at the time of this writing, but they did say that the registration period is at an end.)

Said Mayor Elorza, “This is an example of how we, as a community, can encourage healthy interaction and take advantage of the camaraderie that athletic competition creates.”
