2-Ball Basketball League
Fun competitive game with one partner vs. another team of two players. Object is to make 3-point shots from marked locations around the 3-point line. To start, each team has one player rebounding while the other is placed at one circle on opposite ends of the baseline. If the basket attempt is made, then the shooter moves accordingly to the next marked shooting spot and so on. If the shot is missed then the shooter switches places with the rebounding teammate. First team to go make all shots around and back within time limit wins. 10 shots total there and back with the second baseline shot having to be made twice on the return. If time expires, the team in the lead is the winner. Three games will be played, and best two of three wins. For example should your team win first two games you win. Should first two games be split one to one then third game winner decides the tiebreak. Teams will play 2 opponents each week. Weeks 1-4 will be a round robin, while week 5 will be a mini tournament. Must register with another player! Limited to 16 players, or 8 teams, per division.

November 17th, 2020 Update:
With the new health department restrictions, The Northville Community Center will be closed for classes until at least December 8th. Therefore, we will be postponing the 2-Ball League, in the hopes we can pick them back up if the health order restrictions are lifted on December 8th.
