Friends, happy hour cocktails, and a smart phone in your hand. These days, most of us are juggling a million emails and phone calls and are plugged into our devices all the time. Whether we’re hanging out at the pool or going to a concert, we end up staring at screens and responding to notifications for the majority of the day.
Having our smart phones, tablets, or laptops always at the ready can create a lot of FOMO, anxiety, and stress. It can also be limiting to your social life if you are glued to your screen instead of interacting with the people around you.

Playing in a social sports league has lots of perks like meeting (or hooking up) with other people. Social sports leagues have tons of opportunities for parties, games, themed events, and adventures and you’ll have fun sharing the fun with the cute girls on your team.
