Adult Sports & Drop-in Programs
City of Orinda Adult Softball is returning this summer! This season, three divisions will be offered: 18+ A, 18+ B, and 40+. All divisions will end the season with a two-day weekend postseason tournament to crown a champion. The season will run from June to August, and games are played at Orinda Sports Field and Wilder Fields 1 & 2. The 18+ divisions play on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and the 40+ division plays on Mondays (no games week of July 4th).
The fee is $749 for a resident team and $861.35 for a non-resident team. In order to qualify for the resident rate, 50% or more of a team's roster must include players residing in Orinda. There will be a mandatory preseason coaches' meeting, and games will begin the week of June 6. Please contact Recreation Coordinator, Matt Delmartini, at firstname.lastname@example.org for questions or information on how to register a team.
Sundays are for drop-in basketball at Wagner Ranch Gym located at 350 Camino Pablo. Full court and half-court games are available depending on player turnout, and teams are built randomly. Ages 18 and up and all skill levels are welcome. Currently, the drop-in hours are 10:00-11:30 am. No drop-in on 5/8, and 5/29.
A player account in CivicRec is required in order to register for drop-in basketball. If you need assistance in creating an account, please email Matt Delmartini at MDelmartini@CityofOrinda.org. On-site staff will be available to assist any onsite player who arrives and has not registered prior. The City of Orinda is no longer collecting cash at the door.
With the increased interest and use these last few months, the department has received requests to add additional drop-in opportunities for pickleball players. For that reason, we have added an additional drop-in day on Tuesdays from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Tennis Court #1. This will be in addition to the drop-in hours currently scheduled on Fridays, from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Players will need to bring their own pickleball racket and balls. We’re asking drop-in players to be courteous when others are waiting, as it is customary during drop-in play to allow waiting players to “rotate in” after the completion of each game.
