Played many different sports with them from soccer, dodgeball, volleyball, bowling, flag football, and some of their social events. Great opportunity to play many sports at various levels. It is a friendly group that keeps you coming back to win the elusive champions fleece.

Previously just played in one of their softball leagues on Wednesday nights and I must say I had a great experience. League was organized, umpires were professional, and the staff answered all questions I needed and made team registration easy. I highly recommend their leagues!

I’ve been participating in Players volleyball tournaments for close to 6 years now and they never disappoint. They have so many leagues and tournament dates for multiple sports that I can’t wait for them to post dates so I can fill up my calendar! Lots of friendly and helpful staff and their events are a great setting to meet new people!

These guys run great events and leagues! They have leagues all over the city of every different level of competition. Totally recommend them!
