Recreational Leagues in DC?

Dart Board

I ate dinner last night with a friend who joined a Darts team he found on Craigslist. My friend’s boyfriend joined a ski club he found on Craigslist. It seems like CL is just hopping with activities for people to join. I was curious, so I checked out the DC-area offerings.

We’re home to TONS of active groups – flag football, women’s soccer, Japanese language speakers, softball, dance, movie clubs – you name it we’ve got it! So if you’re in the mood to pick up a new activity to push through the end of the winter doldrums, click your way through to the “activities” section on Craigslist.

That said, any reader suggestions? What’s your favorite recreational league in the DC area?

  1. I don’t see any on craigslisit but DC is known as a home for Choral groups. I think it’d be fun to start a choir or amateur acapella group – just for fun! Any takers?

  2. I’ve played in WAKA kickball leagues, a dodgeball league, and Arlington County softball, and Arlington Athletic and Social League softball. All have been a blast and a great way to meet people…including my future wife playing kickball. :-)

  3. Social Sports of Bethesda is amazing. I played flag football and loved it. The games were competitive enough, but it was a social league and people drank after the games.

  4. I also played “District Sports” soccer. It’s well-organized and fun. Not as “social” though.
