Latest Scoop From ComePlay Detroit
By Justin Jacobs
This month at ComePlayDetroit, we have more championships, the start to some new leagues and open registration for summer leagues.
Last week was the Championship Week for our Co-ed Bowling League at Hartfield Lanes in Berkley, where we have 25 teams and more than 100 young adults participating, making us the largest league in Oakland County!
In a heated battle, last year’s back-to-back champions were defeated by Yelena Pliskina, Mark Benyaminov, Mina Stanton and Heather Fowlie. Congratulations!
On Sunday, April 8, we kicked off our fifth season of the ComePlayDetroit Draft Basketball League. With 10 captains and 60 individual registrants, we held a four-hour training camp (pickup games) for the captains to scout the players. We then headed out to our Draft Room (corner area at Library Pub) to hold our LIVE draft.
The 10 captains took turns, fantasy football style, drafting their teams of seven players each. The teams will now play nine games each over the next 10 weeks, and then the league will culminate with the Championships on July 16 at the West Bloomfield JCC from 7-9 p.m.
Our Co-ed Volleyball Playoffs begin next week at the Oak Park JCC. Come watch on Monday, May 7, as the two best teams battle for the final championship of the volleyball season.
