It’s great news for those who miss passing the rock. Is that what the kids are calling it these days? 

Basketball courts in the City of Pittsfield have now reopened for limited use in adherence to COVID-19 safety guidelines. Signage with these directives will be posted at parks throughout the city. 

In April, city basketball courts were among a list of public spaces that were temporarily closed, as part of the city’s mitigation efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Per the guidelines, the reopening of the courts will allow for practice and drills only. No pick-up games or scrimmages are allowed until further notice. Visitors are reminded to exercise social distancing and limit group size to 25 players or less.

Additionally, facial coverings must be worn when intermittent contact might occur and when participants are not actively engaged in an activity.
