    Rec leagues

    Who here has ever participated in a local rec. league? Bowling, darts, softball, soccer, dodgeball, golf.... whatever?

    Did you find the company and activity worthwhile? Tell us about your experiences.


    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Indoor soccer. Co-ed league so my wife and I could both play. Lots of fun. Then we had kids....

    Hockey, fast and slow pitch softball, volleyball. Good sport and social experiences overall, drank lots of beer afterwards.

    Small field 6v6 soccer. I have done indoor but too many elbows, getting crashed againsted the boards and tackles took its toll. I almost broke a toe from getting tackled by a goalie and found something with less contact.

    In DC many of the alumni assocations formed a group called CAN (Capital Alumni Network). It was had 50 or so alumni groups that competed by university in rec league sports like flag football, volleyball, basketball and softball. All were co-ed sports and had great parties to kick off and end the season.

    Soccer (11v11 & 8v8) & softball

    It was fun while it lasted - (it being my knees), went out as groups sometimes made several friends...a couple that we still stay in touch

    Basketball, volleyball, bowling. All worthwhile. All involved drinking either before (rarely) or after (always) or during (how do you bowl without beer?).
