DERRY — Local basketball courts are crowded with young players this winter.
Derry Parks and Recreation's winter basketball program for youth is underway. Players range from 4 years old through high school.
The program offers instruction for the younger players, and official games for the older youth.
Games are held on weekends and last about an hour. Some players have a weekly practice time before taking on their opponents.
Hundreds of local players take part in the winter program, learning about basketball and shooting hoops with friends.
For information about the winter basketball program, call Derry Parks and Recreation at 432-6136.
