While Montreal might be known for putting the culinary delight of poutine on the map, the city is also brimming with a vast array of adult sports options. The MTL doesn’t disappoint, whether you’re a seasoned adult athlete or just getting started in playing sports. There’s something for everyone in this bustling city.

But instead of making you dig your way through a ton of websites to find an adult sports league in the Montreal area that’s right for you, Adults Play Sports has made it easy by putting together a list on your behalf.

You’ll get a short description, and you can get more details by linking to their listing in our directory from the list below.

Speaking of which, Adults Play Sports has a searchable online directory of adult sports leagues, trainers, camps, clinics, lessons, and tournaments (sort of like the Yelp of adult sports). Search by sport, location, gender, competition level, or other features, like LGBTQ, senior leagues, social leagues, and more.

Who says just because you’ve hit the adulting stage in your life, you should have to give up sports or be intimidated about starting a sport later in life? We think there’s no better time than now to get involved in adult sports in Montreal, and we’ll give you some guidance and highlight some adult sports leagues in the city you call home.

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 but also participate in social events like happy hours? Or do you not consider yourself much of an athlete, but you’d still like to do something sporty-ish?

There are all types of adult sports leagues that cater to different personas. Some leagues are ultra-competitive. But there are other 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 Montreal is that you’re more likely to find leagues with these types of features. Those adult athletes in the Yukon aren’t quite as fortunate when it comes to having as many options as you do.
