A Planet Social Sports league is a splendid way to enjoy warm summer evenings and earn exercise outside the monotony of the gym. More importantly, you're bound to meet and covalently bond with guys and girls through competition, teamwork, sweaty high fives, and partying. Teammates meet for socializing and drinking as well as playing, so you'll get to know fellow volleyballers or bowlers and make the striking and setting more fun. All the teams are coed and usually range from 14 to 25 players with as many as 26 teams playfully competing. The last day to sign up for a particular sport is the week before its season begins, and the first spring sport starts on April 4.
Leagues practice at various recreation centers around LA; call ahead for specifics about the sport that interests you.
- I've been playing on a coed football team this season and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a fun outdoor activity on the weekends to break the monotony of running on the treadmill in the gym. – LindsayT, Lunch.com
- This league is great. I'm going on my 5th Season with PSS and I can tell you it has made my Saturday's that much more enjoyable. – Ryan K., Yelp
