This weekend was a big one for recreational leagues in the southeast as they hosted their basketball and volleyball championships.

Christie Castellano, an organizer with the Basketballers, said that the league began in the summer of 2023 and it has continued to expand due to its popularity.  

“We said, why don’t we make other sports that the girls can also participate in,” said Castellano. “So, we added volleyball this time, and we’re actually wanting to add more sports to our sports league.”  

The league is made up of players from Estevan, Weyburn, Carlyle, and Oxbow. The basketball league is currently made up of all males, while the volleyball league comprises both male and female players.

Castellano said that adding recreational sports to your routine is a great way to create work-life balance and is something that can add excitement to your life. 

She noted that anyone 16 and older is welcome to join the league and can contact them via the Estevan Basketballers Facebook page.
