Suggested Sports & Fitness Groups near California
Golf with Tosh & Friends
This group is for players who take golf seriously but like to have fun on the course. The annual membership is $7.
We play both 9 and 18 hole courses in the south bay and peninsula area mostly.
All skill levels are welcome to join but beginners should avoid 18 holes. We play Deep Cliff in Cupertino almost every Friday and Sunken Gardens in Sunnyvale often on weekends.
It is also desired/expected that members establish a golf index to participate in tournaments.
Modesto Fun, Fitness, and Adventures
Thank you to everyone who participated in Modesto Women's Fun & Fitness in 2020!
For 2021, I am changing the name and focus of the group. While it will still be about fun and fitness, it will also be about new adventures and experiences. The group will also be open to women AND men. These activities will incorporate all three of those things--Fun, Fitness, and Adventure. I plan to research and schedule lots of fun outdoor activities and will welcome anyone's ideas going forward.
Group Changes for 2021:
Another change will be that members will now need to introduce and say a little bit about themselves upon joining. If you are already a member, please go in and answer these questions about yourself so that I and other group members can learn about you! In addition, while joining the group is free, in order to participate in future activities there will be yearly membership dues of $10 per person (a small price to pay for fun and meeting new people) in order to offset the cost of organizing the group. Additionally, I will be requiring everyone who joins to have a clear, recognizable photo of THEMSELVES in order to be a member. This is for several reasons, but the main ones are so I know what you look like when you join an event and can account for everyone that signed up, and most importantly, for all group members safety and security. If you join without posting a photo or use a one of a pet or one of your kids instead (not that we don't want to see them too!), I will kindly ask that you post a photo of YOU within seven days. If one is not posted by the deadline, you will be removed from the group. I will continue to look for free and low-cost activities, however, if there is a cost involved this will be posted on the event information, so please be sure to read it carefully and follow the instructions.
I look forward to meeting more of you in the coming year, experiencing new and enjoyable activities, and once COVID starts to settle down, participating in both indoor and outdoor activities. Safety precautions to decrease the likelihood of contracting the virus will always be of utmost importance!

East Bay Pick-Up Soccer (Co-Ed) EVERYBODY WELCOME!!!
San Leandro, CA
Words from the group's founder: Daniel "Uber" Bäsel
I am looking to start up a casual pick up game here in the East Bay with some like minded people. To see if you are interested, let me introduce myself...
I was born and raised in Germany and played soccer from the age of 3 all the way through high school and then casually into my late 20's.
Now in my mid-30's and many pounds heavier, I am far from peak conditioning but would like to start casually playing soccer again on the weekends.
Ideally I would like to play either Saturday or Sunday mornings for about 2 hours in the San Leandro/Castro Valley/Hayward area at a location we can all agree on. I can provide the nets and cones as well.
EVERYBODY is welcome, but if you are a pro player and expect an ultra competitive setting this may not be for you.
I would love to build a little community of like minded soccer fans from around the world to spend a few hours with each week kicking the ball around!
If you are interested, please join this group and i will get in contact with you!!
Here are a few rules to follow when deciding to join us for a friendly pick-up game. most of these are pretty "common sense" but I still think it is a good idea to lay them out so everyone knows what to expect (Please note that breaking these rules will eventually result in a ban from this group):
1) "The Golden Rule": We are all here to have fun, get a little exercise in and walk away happy and most importantly healthy. Slide tackling/Body Checking is ABSOLUTELY NOT permitted ANYTIME and doing so will result in a warning as well as a free kick for the other team.
2) "Everybody's Game" : This is a MeetUp group for EVERYONE who would like to come and play. Young and old, male or female, skilled or brand new to the game of soccer. Please treat it as such. If you are a skilled player with lots of experience, try to involve the players who may be new to the game as good as you can.
3) "Foul Language" : We are all adults in this group and I sure have a potty mouth at times. Just a few things to keep in mind though. Cursing or directing foul language at another player is NOT TOLERATED and will result in a warning. If the game angers you to the point where you have to direct foul language at another player, perhaps this is not the meetup for you.
4)"Goalies" : Most people don't like to play goalie but if we all share the duty of playing goalie, it becomes less of a hassle for everyone. Please volunteer to play goalie rather than having to be asked to.

East Bay Golf Group
East Bay Golf Group Meetup
This (Beginner & Intermediate) Meetup group is to have fun and meet new people while playing golf. If you are looking to play golf in a relaxed atmosphere, then this is that type of group. You may be a beginner, or you may have played before, it doesn’t matter. Most members are beginner to intermediate golfers.
The goal is to get outside, play and hopefully improve our game a little bit. We will play at various courses around the East Bay Area. Courses scheduled will be typically 9-hole and some 18-hole courses, often doing scramble to make things a little easier. Feel free to suggest courses for future meetups.
All that's asked is that you show up ready to play when you say you will, repeat no-shows can be kicked from the group. Also, please be familiar with basic etiquette and rules of golf, including pace of play. Please be aware that no instruction or equipment is provided.
And last, but not least, if the course played at has got a bar then you can usually find group members there cooling off with a drink after the round!
Northern California Golf Club
NORTHERN CALIFORNIA GOLF CLUB
We are a social golf meetup group, which offers its members an option to join our very own NCGA Associate Club by the same name: Northern California Golf Club. To register, here is the link:
If you click on the above link, you'll see a green "Join This Club" button with a yellow star on it.
You are welcome to join us if you are an Intermediate+ golfer. Here are some expectations:
- Familiarity with basic rules of golf and golf etiquette, particularly the practice of honoring a good pace of play;
- Respect for the game and our members;
- Adherence to our policies, including showing up for events on time or earlier if requested.
Whether you participate in our golf outings or our non-golf social events, you are responsible for any damages or injuries you cause to property or other persons. You are participating at NCGC events at your own risk, and neither the Organizer nor the Event Organizers will be liable for damages or injuries caused by any of our members during our meetups or travel to and from our meetups. NCGC is also not liable for any injuries inflicted upon it members or damages done to members' properties or loss of properties (including golf equipment, transportation, etc.) during events and travel to and from our meetups.
Also, unless you are already a member of our Beginners group, you must use your real name or initials and a recent photo of yourself when signing up. If you are not comfortable with this policy or any of our other policies, this is not the group for you.
OUR GOALS AND ACTIVITIES
Let’s play our part in promoting and practicing the industry’s goal of finishing a round in about 4.5 hours.
For over two years, we have been providing exceptional golf experience to players of all ages, and our group keeps getting better and better. We will continue to play 18-hole courses all over the Bay Area and sometimes beyond.
We oftentimes hang out after the round for a meal or a drink. This is optional, so don't feel obligated to stick around if your plans do not permit it.
We are also open to suggestions for playing various courses in the Bay Area. If there is a course you would like to play, let one of the Event Organizers know and we will look to getting it on the calendar.
Annual NON-REFUNDABLE fee: $11.36.
If a member is removed from our group, this fee will not be refunded.
ATTENDANCE and RSVPs
Our attendance policy is strict. This is a requirement as we reserve tee times up to two weeks in advance, and we are required to fill those tee times. Golf courses do not like last minute cancellations as they make their money by having full foursomes.
When you receive notifications of scheduled meetups, it is not necessary to reply "No" if you are not attending an event. You have the option to click on "Yes" or "No," but you don't have to; you can simply delete the email without replying. Of course, if you RSVP "Yes" then your plans change, you must update your RSVP to "No."
Do not sign up for a meetup if there's a chance that you might have to cancel at the last minute. It's better for you to sign up at the last minute than to cancel at the last minute.
* Although one no-show may result in the removal from our group, the first no-show may only be given a warning, depending on the circumstances.
* Last-minute cancellations are frowned upon. A last-minute cancel is if you cancel your RSVP after the RSVP deadline or after an Event Organizer has posted the group assignments, which might be a day or two before the RSVP deadline.
* A combination of a no-show and last-minute cancellation will also result in the removal from our group.
* Last-minute cancellations will be accepted from our "regular" members who have a good attendance record—until it starts to become a habit.
Thank you for observing and respecting our policies. We work hard to ensure that our members always have a great experience on the golf course.
Welcome to the Northern California Golf Club. We look forward to your upcoming participation.

Greater Millbrae Pickup Soccer for Fitness and Longevity
I am determined to establish a midweek winter soccer game or two to supplement our existing weekend games (ie. I need more soccer but am too feeble to play both Saturday and Sunday). All are welcome especially those new to soccer. Emphasis on fun and fitness. Rough play and bad attitudes will not be tolerated. Thank you for your support!
Santa Clara Casual Volleyball
Santa Clara, CA
Volleyball for all! Beginners and intermediates are welcome for casual and fun play. This is a great opportunity to meet new people, exercise and socialize! All are welcome, we have a few nets and will be playing on grass. This is casual play and some of the rules are ignored just for simplicity. For more advanced players, call your own (or as needed). Teams will be made at random by counting off numbers to form a team.
For first timers: <br>You are not required to stay the full time. <br>Bring some water. <br>Wear shoes for exercise. <br>Bring a light jacket (we play mostly in the shade, it gets cooler in the evenings)
FAQ <br>1. Q: I'm new, Can I come out and play? <br> A: Yes. If you want some help, ask for some tips.
If you have never played, I recommend reading a little bit about the basic game play, scoring and watch a few videos. It will be a little easier for you to get started.
Brentwood Pick up Soccer

Just Fore Fun Roseville Women's Golf Group
We are a group of awesome women who are in various stages of learning to play golf. We usually play 9 Holes but may sometimes go for 18. This is a no pressure group; beginners are welcome. Sacrifices to the water gods are expected. All we ask is that you show up ready to play when you say you will. Over 21 and under 105. Dues $10 a year to help cover expenses. You will find more than just women to play golf with; you will find true friends. We play Indian Creek on Tuesday and we sometimes play on Thursdays and Sundays.
We play "Ready Golf". This keeps the game moving. Basically this means that you should always be ready as soon as possible for your next shot and whoever is ready should go ahead and hit or putt even if they are not the farthest from the hole. You don't have to wait for everyone to get on the green to putt. Of course safety is important so don't go out in front of someone to hit your ball (that is one time you do wait). Two people on opposite sides of the fairway can hit at the same time unless they are both chipping toward the hole. Use common sense. The goal is to keep a good pace but not cause anyone to feel rushed or stressed.
We just want to have fun.
Indian Creek Country Club - A token for a small bucket of balls. Not good on 1/2 off days.
Mark Hatala, PGA Professional - Offers weekly 1 hour golf clinics for $10 on Tuesdays 9a-10a beginning 8/26/19.

Downtown SF Tennis
San Francisco, CA
I'm looking to hit / practice during weekday morning/afternoons at either the Bay Club Gateway, Dolores, or Russian Hill tennis courts (or another court in the same area). Approximately NTRP 4.0 level, but just looking to rally for fun (though with a lot of top spin). I don't have a 9-5 schedule, so I'm looking for others that have that flexibility to play before the busy hours after 5.
Feel free to reach out to me directly or post your own events as well for times that work for you. It looks like Meetup removed the ability to let all members post events, so just message me or reply here if you'd like to post some times yourself and I'll give you event organizer status to do so.
