Every Wednesday evening at five o’clock, a large group of residents and volunteers – even a life coach or two – walk single file down the path to the village school. Two captains are chosen. They try to pick two balanced teams – male and female, skilled and novice– and the game begins.
The weekly New Life Foundation basketball is fast, furious and competitive. The congregation of dogs–our two included – plus village children add a boisterous cheering section.
We’re not ready for the NBA, but it’s still quite a respectable pick-up game.
