The Benefits of Playing in a Recreational Sports League


Most adults work all day sitting at a desk and need an outlet to be active and reduce stress. Participating in a sport such as a recreational basketball league can reduce stress, provide positive social relationships, and increase physical fitness levels.


We’ve compiled the top 3 benefits of participating in a recreational sports league:


Meet your fitness goals:

The best form of exercise is not always enduring weekly sessions at the gym. Often times, adults are more likely to stick to their health and fitness goals when they’re doing something they actually enjoy.  Practicing for the next basketball game can burn more calories than a typical 45 minute workout. There’s no easy fix to become healthy. Staying active is a lifestyle. Finding a seasonal league or club team that you love, with teammates to keep you accountable, will help you surpass daily fitness goals, and maintain a regular routine for exercise.


Expand your social network:

Recreational sports leagues provide the perfect outlet to create new connections and encounter fresh faces. If you’ve recently relocated to a new town, joining that a recreational sports team can be a great way to get plugged into the local community. You’ll be able to adjust faster to the new scene by getting acquainted with veteran players who know the area. Even if you’ve never played a sport before, but want to learn, don’t be afraid to jump in.


Work hard, play hard:

With all the time you put into your career, family and other obligations, you deserve some time off. Get away from the daily grind by dribbling up and down the court with some friends. It’s the best way to blow off steam after a hard day in the office or de-stress after a long week.


Recreational sports for adults are just as beneficial as they are for children. They provide much needed stress relief and a way to escape from the usual routine of the workweek. Make your plans now to join a team or league, and start enjoying these benefits for yourself.
