Play Ball!

Recreational sports are a great way to remain active, meet new people and have fun!

When I moved to Boston in May of 2005 I used Craigslist to join my first softball team. Since then I’ve had a blast and met some quality people. I’ve participated in:

2006 Winter Basketball Basketball City BWH Free Agents
2006 Winter Dodgeball BSSC

You did meet Albert through softball, and he's a stand-up individual... except for the fact that he had the nerve to move to LA!!

Though not all that sporty in school, I am now an avid intramural floor hockey fan. Nothing gets the blood pumping like a little running around after an orange ball with a long stick. I've met some peoples, gotten my tush off the couch, and learned a valuable skill: how to mutter under my breath at the other players.

Also - people should consider trying Social Boston Sports . They're a new organization, but have a really fun attitude towards team sports. And in the interests of full disclosure, they did in fact sponsor the salsa event.

I love playing soccer with BSSC. It's a co-ed league and who doesn't love beating up on the boys once and awhile! :)

Great advice John R. I've done soccer and dodgeball with BSSC. Even if you don't meet people to remain friends with, it's great to have something to do during the week.
