The Newton YMCA Competitive Men’s Basketball League has been in existence since 1896. Games of 4 v. 4 were played on a high school regulation sized court. It was in this setting that the Newton YMCA hosted basketball tournaments, which attracted elite players from Newton and surrounding areas. The legendary Boston Celtics even made appearances at youth clinics and other special events.
In the fall of 2003, updates were made to both the league regulations and the facility and in January 2004 the men’s league was playing once again. This time in a newly renovated 10,000 sq. ft. facility. We also added a women’s league.
Today our league is one of Boston's premier basketball leagues, featuring 5 vs. 5 play on a regulation court with certified officials and player statistics. Leagues are offered year round for all levels of competition.
