The perfect weapon to stave off a boring afternoon, Maple Sports Arena invites visitors to zip around its inline skating rink, hit up the arcade, or explore its indoor jungle gyms. Kids can glide around the rink during open skate before refueling at the snack bar with personal pizzas and sodas. After that, they're welcome to swap out skates for sneakers to conquer five-story Marple Mountain?a technicolor climbing landscape that's littered with ropes, obstacles, and ladders?or head to the indoor rock wall to conquer vertical space and claim the wall as your own with your family's flag.
Philadelphia Sports Network boasts more than 10,000 members, making it the largest organization for recreational sports in Philadelphia. Registration in the adults-only coed dodgeball league includes team shirts, equipment, two referees per game, free post-game drinks, championship prizes, special PSN Pass discount card, and more. Dodgeball teams play seven or eight weekly matches including playoffs and championship games. Teams contain a minimum of nine players who rotate onto the court for a six-on-six, action-packed recreation of the playground battlegrounds of yore.
Philadelphia Sport and Social Club places athletically minded individuals into leagues, offering six levels of play, from recreational to fiercely competitive. Sports range from men's indoor basketball to outdoor favorites such as coed soccer and coed hockey, played with bladeless skates on the dry, frictional equivalent of ice—a floor. Meeting at several facilities throughout Philadelphia, most sports' seasons consist of 6–10 games and one round of single-elimination playoffs, culminating in prizes for the victors, such as long-sleeve T-shirts and, for kickball champions, a pageant of apologies from former playground bullies.
Beyond providing an opportunity for friendly competition and social interaction throughout the Denver area, the organizers of Denver Bocce League only have one mission: help players have fun. During each season, teams of up to 12 players compete in lighthearted bouts of the classic Italian game, which unlike other sports, requires little to no experience, physical exertion, or physics PhDs to master. After each game, teams can head to local bars for exclusive drink specials, and a variety of prizes await the victor of each season's playoffs.
Maplezone Sports Institute has a straightforward mission: creating a safe training environment for athletes of all ages. It's not as simple as it may sound, though?for one, it requires a lot of real estate. The Institute contains tens of thousands of square feet of training space, between the Academy building, the Fieldhouse building, and currently-in-construction Sports Village. Within the space, they have a skilled set of expert coaches overseeing one-on-one or small group lessons in baseball, softball, lacrosse, and soccer. In addition to teaching the specific techniques needed to play the sports, such as ball-handling, bat swinging, and victory dancing, the coaches help their clients to both get stronger, move faster, and feel better.
As the only professional coed team sport in the continental United States, Alaska, and Hawaii, World TeamTennis provides tennis enthusiasts with an adventurous approach to match play. A single match consists of two teams made up of high-ranking men's and women's professionals. These four-player teams (two men and two women) battle one another across a five-set gauntlet—the one-on-one onslaught of men's and women's singles, the low-five-laden lusciousness of men's and women's doubles, and the gender-juxtaposed jubilation of mixed doubles. Whoever wins the majority takes home bragging rights and, possibly, temporary immortality. This year's Philadelphia Freedoms roster features fast-serving superstar Andy Roddick alongside pros such as Ramon Delgado and Courtney Nagle.
