Social sports are a big deal in DC. Since there are so many options, how do you determine which league to join?
The sport you want to play and where you’re willing to play at will impact your decision. Unfortunately, there are no Whirlyball leagues at the Verizon Center quite yet.
Let’s continue to look at three leagues you should try out. See Part 1 here.
Part 2: ZogSports DC
I’ve played sand volleyball (6×6 and 4×4) with ZogSports DC since 2014.
Sand volleyball is a lot of fun. Although the season for league outdoor volleyball is winding down, on weekends, there is usually a big turn-out at the Lincoln Memorial Sand Courts for free pick-up matches.
The sign-up fee for ZogSports DC includes six matches (with playoffs if you qualify), a team t-shirt and the winning team each week gets a free pitcher or bucket of beer at the sponsor bar. The top two teams in each league gets a donation (from ZogSports) sent to the cause/charity of their choice. I also like that the website tracks the standings and archives any past leagues you have played in.
The locations of the different sports are all across the city, so you should have no trouble finding something that is convenient for you.
