Northborough – Over 500 children in grades 1 through 8 participate each year in the Northborough Youth Basketball Association (NYBA), which runs summer and winter programs as well as travel teams. Games are held on the courts at Ellsworth-McAfee Park as well as at the local elementary schools. But over the past few years, the harsh winter weather, as well as the natural decay of the 20-year-old courts, took its toll. The Fannie E. Proctor Elementary School was in particularly bad shape, according to Tom Spataro, the NYBA president.
