What is Sporty Girls?

Sporty Girls started as a group of friends getting together to play informal, pick-up-type outdoor sports and games. It's an opportunity for women of any age or skill level to come try a new (or old) sport and "just play," without an emphasis on being "good" or winning. When we play team sports, we don't do schoolyard picks, so nobody is ever "last."

We are an inclusive, LBT-friendly group. If you identify as a woman, you are welcome!

What do we play?

Sand volleyball, Frisbee/Ultimate, badminton, kickball, dodgeball, flag football, street hockey, and more. We're always open to suggestions for new things to play.

When do we play?

We try to schedule at least two events per month, and we try to alternate Saturdays and Sundays.

Where do we play, and how much does it cost?

We usually play at public places such as parks or schools so that it doesn't cost anything. The location changes depending on what we're playing.

What kind of shape should I be in to play?

We DO NOT discriminate, period. You can play with us no matter your age or ability. Although some of the sports and games we play require a moderate amount of physical exertion, you should always only play to your comfort level. We will spend a few minutes before all games stretching, warming up, and talking about ways to minimize the risk of getting hurt. However, all Sporty Girls events are "play at your own risk."

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
