There’s more to Silicon Valley than tech—it offers great adult sports options, too. We found 68 adult sports leagues and organizations where the athlete in you can thrive. From San Jose to Palo Alto to Oakland and beyond, you’ll find everything from rugby to rowing.

And before any of you argue that some of the cities on the list don’t belong to Silicon Valley, according to the Silicon Valley Historical Society, the region has expanded to include all these cities and more. San Francisco is considered part of Silicon Valley, but we gave it its own list of adult sports.

We think there’s no better time than now to get involved in adult sports in Silicon Valley, 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 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 Silicon Valley is that you’re more likely to find leagues with these features. Adult athletes in the Yukon aren’t quite as fortunate when it comes to having as many options as you are.
