A Community Blog from Boondock Sports
Many adults have fond memories of playing youth sports as a child.
The excitement and camaraderie are lessons we learn on the ballfield and take with us into our adult years. Our parents liked that it got us out of the house for fresh air and exercise.
However, just because we are no longer children doesn’t mean that we cannot still enjoy recreational sports. We want to point out four benefits to joining an adult sports league.
1. Keeps Us Moving
In our busy lives, it can be hard to find time to exercise, but adult sports leagues are an easy way to get a couple hours of activity into your week. Of course, this depends on the activity – basketball is going to work up more of a sweat than cornhole, for example.
2. Widens Your Social Circle
It gets harder to meet people as we get older, especially ones with common interests. An adult sports league will naturally connect you with people that share a love of the particular activity that you’re signing up for. Uniting for a common goal of winning a game builds camaraderie, and many teams take part in postgame trips to a restaurant or bar to keep conversation and good times rolling away from the playing field.
3. Could Help You Get Ahead at the Office
Many adult sports league teams are fielded by companies. Joining one of these teams can connect you with people in your company that you may have otherwise not had the chance to meet. Many times, a supervisor or member of management will play on a team, get to know an employee/teammate, and promote that person.
4. Strengthens Your Mental Health
With so many obligations to family and work, it’s tough to forget that we all need a little “me time” every now and then. Signing up for an adult sports league will give you that outlet. Returning to an activity that you were successful at in your childhood could also provide a confidence boost if you can channel some of that skill and excel in that sport many years later.
This Summer, Boondock Sports is partnering with the Food Truck Festivals of America to host Cornhole tournaments at select events in Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
Food Truck Festivals of America hosts family-friendly Food Truck and Craft Beer festivals on the east coast features many local gourmet food trucks and craft beer vendors. This year, Boondock Sports invites both serious and recreational Cornhole players to participate in Cornhole tournaments at these exciting events.
Cornhole tournaments will be held at the following Food Truck and Craft Beer Festivals:
Newport, RI - May 18th
Worcester, MA - June 1st
Cape Cod, MA - August 10th
New Bedford, MA - September 14th
Each Tournament will feature two brackets; an advanced bracket for the more competitive players, and a social bracket for the recreational players. Both brackets will include cash prizes and a food spread to the winning teams!
For $50/team for the advanced bracket and $20/team for the recreational bracket, players will get complimentary access to the festival too. Pre-registration is recommended to secure your spot and guarantee access to the event as thousands of people will be attending these festivals and it will likely sell out.
