Last month, I posted how there’s a new game in town as the Dallas Gay Basketball Association was forming and signing up members. Organizer Steven Coleman called me up yesterday to tell me that Saturday will be the first game day of their inaugural season. For the next seven weeks, the DGBA takes over every Saturday afternoon at Reverchon. And with an impressive number of members to boot.
“We’ve had 42 people sign up,” Coleman says. “So right now, we have six teams of seven.”
They have capped membership for now to avoid being overwhelmed, but that’s a healthy way to start the first season.
Coleman says that an additional two weeks will play after the season for playoffs. The hope is to start a summer league, but right now, the focus is on getting the word out about tomorrow.
The DGBA plays from 2–5 p.m. at the Reverchon Rec.
