Searching for a spot to join a pick-up game or simply shoot some hoops? Look no further than the West Suburban YMCA! At the Wells Ave Y location, we offer four indoor full basketball courts, while the Church St location features one full indoor court and an outdoor basketball hoop, ensuring your court needs are met regardless of the weather. Enjoy open gym for basketball daily at both locations, with league play usually available during the winter season. Our 3v3 Basketball league play at the Y provides the ideal opportunity to stay engaged in the game and have a blast while doing so.
