PEACH BASKET CLASSIC


24th Annual 3-on-3 Basketball

Keeping with tradition, the YMCA's 2017 Peach Basket Classic was held during the first full weekend in August in downtown Walla Walla.

Despite the sweltering triple digit heat and smoke-hazed skies, 231 teams from all around the Pacific Northwest bounced, jostled, and shot basketballs at hoops in order to move up in their bracket. By Sunday afternoon, 31 teams had earned the title of Champion in their respective divisions.


An early morning look down Main Street shows an empty lineup of basketball hoops waiting for players to begin warming up. 
Hoops were set up for three blocks along Main Street south of Second, and also along the side streets.




Teams were at liberty to design their own uniforms.
Some were more creative than others.

AUGUST 1-CDP THEME DAY: YOUNG AT HEART

I Want To Hold Your Hand


Oh yeah, I tell you somethin'
I think you'll understand
When I say that somethin'
I want to hold your hand
I want to hold your hand
I want to hold your hand

Oh please, say to me,
You'll let me be your man
And please say to me
You'll let me hold your hand
Now, let me hold your hand
I want to hold your hand

And when I touch you 
I feel happy inside
It's such a feelin' that my love
I can't hide
I can't hide
I can't hide

Yeah, you got that somethin'
I think you'll understand
When I say that somethin'
I want to hold your hand
I want to hold your hand
I want to hold your hand

-John Lennon & Paul McCartney, 1963
