You’ve been sitting in the stands, watching the kids long enough – adults, it’s time to get in the game!

The Placerville Recreation Department offers adult sports leagues to encourage fitness, healthy competition and fun in the form of organized sports. Choose from three-on-three basketball, five-on-five basketball, volleyball, and softball leagues.

Our three-on-three basketball league plays Wednesday nights at Markham School, while the five-on-five basketball league plays at El Dorado High School on Sunday afternoons and evenings. The adult coed volleyball league is a six-on-six or four-on-four league, playing Thursday nights at Markham School. New seasons begin throughout the year. Our largest adult sports program, the adult softball league, plays in the spring, summer and fall; men’s, women’s and coed divisions are available, as well as our newest “wooden bat” division. Games are held Sunday through Friday at Lions Park in Placerville.

For all sports leagues, players form their own teams and are placed into competitive divisions. Individuals interested in joining a team should contact the Recreation Department to be put on our “free agent” list; teams are guaranteed a minimum of seven games each season.
