What we're about

Chicago Meetup is Chicago's Meetup Group for creativity, style, life, and nightlife. With over 3,000 members, Chicago Meetup is the largest Arts & Culture Meetup Group in Chicago (http://www.meetup.com/find/#?offset=0&psize=64¤tpage=1&categories=1&keywords=&radius=5&userFreeform=Chicago%2C+Illinois%2C+USA&mcId=z2805447&mcName=Chicago%2C+IL&sort=member_count&_suid=136724423515007654047867352853) and is one of its largest overall (http://www.meetup.com/find/#?offset=0&psize=64¤tpage=1&allMeetups=true&categories=&keywords=&radius=5&userFreeform=Chicago%2C+Illinois%2C+USA&mcId=z2805447&mcName=Chicago%2C+IL&sort=member_count&_suid=136724472010305202601599568803). Nearly shut down in July 2009 when its original founder left, the group has flourished as Chicago's most eclectic Meetup Group and one of the city's most active and fastest-growing groups.

Because it operated for over three years as the Creative Social Club and remains dedicated to engaging Chicago's creative community, Chicago Meetup is creative, experimental, and unbounded at its core. Chicago Meetup has many Meetups and the diversity of those Meetups will range from quirky hipster storytelling Meetups in Lincoln Square to arts professional development programs in West Town to fashion shows and bourgie nightlife Meetups in River North. If you are an eclectic person, this is the Meetup Group for you.

Chicago Meetup is an informal community of individuals. As with all Meetup Groups, membership in Chicago Meetup is subject to the Meetup Terms of Service (http://www.meetup.com/terms/).

Leagues played at various locations around Chicago. See league specifics for details!

READ BELOW. IT EXPLAINS EVERYTHING ABOUT THE LEAGUES, HOW FUN THEY ARE AND HOW TO GET ON A TEAM! NOTE: The listed date and location for this Meetup are just placeholders. These coed rec leagues give you an exciting weekly activity to look forward to and keep you active, social and meeting new people! I've been running em for 10 years now, and love seeing how easy it is for people to build lasting relationships because you hang out with the same group of players and teams week after week during the 5-8 week season. EVERYONE makes friends, maybe meets that special someone and expands their social circle in S3! ALL SKILL LEVELS ARE WELCOME (i.e. no experience required). I'm able to make teams for anyone aged 21-42. Simply register by yourself or with friends and I'll put you with others around your age for the season. After registering, I'll email EVERYTHING you need to know for the season including your teammates info, the full schedule, how/where we play and TONS more! The good times start at games but then continue as we mix and mingle over drinks ALL TOGETHER after playing at a bar everyone walks to. It's an amazing sight seeing so many S3 players in one bar. Over 50,000 past players (yeah that many haha) have had a blast! You can be a part of these seasons for just $50-$85 w/ promo code 'CHICAGOMEETUP' ($20 off!) *********************************************** FULL DETAILS & REGISTRATION: http://s3leagues.com/register-now-for-summer-2-softball-kickball--beach-volleyball-leagues-starting-in-junejuly.html Meetup Group Members & Your Friends Get $20 OFF Softball & Kickball Player League Fees!
