For more than 12 years, Metro Sports has given amateur and competitive players alike the chance to quench their thirst for the game with other coed teammates. Presided over by expert officials, teams play near the National Mall every spring, summer, and fall, making sure to avoid waking the kraken that lives in the Reflecting Pool.
While softball is an available adult coed league, Metro Sports offers more sports as well. Refereed soccer leagues face off during battles of thrilling breakaways and impassioned goaltending year-round, moving to an indoor turf field every winter. Volleyball seasons likewise divide between indoor and outdoor courts. Each Metro-accessible game takes place at various locations in Northwest DC.

In 1949, William E. Miller—known as W.E. to his friends—opened Rosecroft Raceway, transforming a 120-acre farm into a showcase for the exciting standardbred racing that had begun to take the nation by storm. After briefly closing in 2008, the track soon reopened, hoping to reclaim W.E.’s legacy with fast-paced action seven nights a week. Every day, simulcasts convey harness- and quarter-horse races from across the country as visitors place bets on which steeds will attempt to chew their jockeys’ hats. On Tuesdays and Saturdays, hooves pound the dirt during live contests as chefs prepare everything from mozzarella sticks to succulent spare ribs in the Terrace Dining Room.
Urban Pirate takes to the harbor to give folks a taste of the pirate life with interactive cruises. During kids' parties and Bring Your Own Grog outings for adults alike, the crew of scalawags and USCG–licensed captains gets everyone into the marauding spirit
with temporary tattoos and drawn-on facial hair. They also dole out wacky attire to help guests look the part, lead sea shanties, and kickstart games. Some even sail up on the ship in speedboats, giving passengers a chance to blast them with water cannons. All of the shenanigans take place aboard a 54' ship complete with two enormous masts and 12 water cannons.
