Basketball is Back at LA Fitness Gyms in MoCo, Returning at Life Time on 5/14

Basketball courts at local gyms were closed for over a year after covid restrictions were put into place in March of 2020.

At the end of April, LA Fitness gyms with basketball courts reopened the basketball side of things, allowing up to 10 people to play on the court at once with masks required and no spectators on a first come, first serve basis.

Life Time in Gaithersburg recently sent members an email stating that basketball will resume at the gym starting Friday, March 14th.

A month and a half ago, Montgomery Parks started putting hoops back up in outdoor local parks after a year of many hoops being removed. Local photographer, Jordan “Jah” Henson documented the empty courts in a series of photos called Covid Courts.
