Things To Consider In An Adult Sports League

Born Competitor or Social and Sporty (Or Just Social)?

There are several factors to consider when picking an adult sports league. Are you looking for full-contact, hardcore competition? Or are you more interested in a social sports league where you can have fun playing a sport and also participate in social events like happy hours? Or do you not consider yourself much of an athlete but still want to do something sporty-ish?

There are all types of adult sports leagues that cater to different personas. Some are ultra-competitive, but there are also leagues where socializing is just as important as actually playing a sport.

Social sports leagues usually arrange events beyond sports games, like happy hours or other networking events. These types of leagues tend to be good choices for the more casual athlete. A lot of social sports leagues offer beginner-friendly sports like cornhole, kickball, bowling, and dodgeball.

Additional Features You Might Want In An Adult Sports League

Some other things you might want to consider in picking an adult sports league that’s right for you are:

The great thing about living in the Lehigh Valley is that you’re more likely to find leagues with these types of features (although we didn’t find any LGBTQ ones–drop a comment if you know of any). Those adult athletes in South Dakota aren’t quite as fortunate when it comes to having as many options as you do.
