What we're about

The aim of this group to foster an environment to make and sustain friendships. We, as organizers, hope to create a far-reaching community in Columbus where we can enjoy the city together in mutual camaraderie. This is a responsible, active, and healthy group of individuals and professionals who want to gain more from life and from Columbus. We host dodgeball, kickball, volleyball, tennis, paintball, disc golf, go-karting, flag football, softball, wiffle ball, and more on a regular basis. All sports are welcome! The goal is for these activities to be free or nearly free and not require a weekly commitment. Just show up and play! CSS desires to build a community with a high standard of ingenuity that is both interesting and active. We strive to build consistency with recurring events that allow space to learn more about our active group. Feel free to explore our site and get to know our members. Remember that we take fun seriously! Also, please introduce yourself; we love getting to know new people!

Note: THIS GROUP IS OPEN FOR ANYONE TO HOST THEIR OWN PICKUP GAME OR SOCIAL EVENT, JUST MESSAGE ANY ORGANIZER AND WE WILL BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO HELP GET YOU SET UP. I schedule some events revolving around my own interests but CSS isn't about me. If there is a sport or social event that you enjoy why not get it started. You'll quickly discover how satisfying it can be organizing events and bringing people of all walks of life together to participate in a sport or social event!

Pickleball (Open Play) @ Thompson Rec

Thompson Recreation Center

Pickleball is one of the fastest growing games in the nation and here's your chance to get in on the action at Thompson Recreation Center! If you've never heard of it, it is an up-tempo game that is an entertaining mix of tennis, racquetball, badminton and ping pong. It’s fast-paced, easy-to-learn, lots of exercise, and an awesome way to meet people. All skill levels are welcome. Paddles and balls are provided. Typically a game played with Two to Four players on a court a bit smaller then a tennis court. Players use paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a plastic whiffle type ball, over a lower net then tennis. Pickleball has a funny name but is an extremely fun, and social sport, and we invite anyone interested to come give it a try! Limited spots available so RSVP today!

Happy Volleyball Club (Indoors)

Location visible to members

We officially have two nets up and the entire gym. This is our competitive night so we ask for player who have played on a league before or can do 3 hits each side. This is an indoor volleyball court. You must have appropriate sneakers for playing in the gym. This is open volleyball for YMCA so many players never sign up here. Even if you only see two people sign up please sign up and come anyway. We always have at least two teams of players each week. This is an open volleyball night for YMCA. It is free if you have a YMCA membership, if not then it is $10 as a guest fee or read below for the $25 monthly 🏐 pass for the YMCA. There is only one court so it is important to be on time to be able to play. If we have more than two teams then we alternate the third team to play the winner. We allow all levels of players and no one is turned away! Please leave your attitude at home and any bullies are not welcomed in the group. I am not sure if you already have a YMCA membership but I got this message today regarding volleyball. From the Director of the YMCA: Anyone who is not a member of the Y can now buy a monthly volleyball pass. Each month will be a different color and will be $25 per person. They will need to sign a guest form if they are not in the system already.They will need to bring there pass each time. This will allow them into the Y only for volleyball on Tuesday, Friday and Sunday during the month. There will be no more free guest passes if they come in just 1 time they will need to pay a $10 guest pass fee. They will purchase them at the front desk.
