For nine years, Social Boston Sports (SBS) has been working to encourage young professionals to stay physically active outside of work in the greater Boston area. Social Boston Sports, like Playworks, uses play as a medium for people to have fun. We are excited to announce our partnership to give young professionals the opportunity to give back to the community through Playworks and our work with students.

Over the course of the year, Playworks and Social Boston Sports will partner in various ways. Social Boston Sports will offer volunteer opportunities to their networks of SBS members to help Playworks continue to implement programming in Boston Public Schools. Social Boston Sports participants will have the opportunity to referee or coach during our developmental sports leagues and serve as assistant coaches during recess at Playworks schools.  

Playworks and Social Boston Sports are looking forward to partner and host events throughout the spring and summer months. Playworks will be the sole beneficiary for Social Boston Sports Player Party's located at Harpoon Brewery and the Central Wharf Company, and the Social Boston Scramble. Additionally, Social Boston Sports will be a sponsor at the Playworks Run for Recess, ensuring that young professionals throughout the metro Boston area are aware of the race. Finally, our Playworks staff will have a Social Boston Sports Kickball team during this upcoming spring season. We are excited to continue our partnership with Social Boston Sports and look forward to spreading the power of play to all!


About Social Boston Sports

Social Boston Sports (SBS) was created in January 2007 by four young professionals with the goal of keeping the fun we had in college alive after college. Today, SBS is a rapidly growing community of SBS-ers who love to have fun and live life to the fullest! Specifically, SBS provides our community members, aka SBS-ers, with an organized way to get involved in coed recreational sports leagues, events, and adventure trips throughout Boston.

SBS Mission: To be the #1 destination for fun in Boston for young professionals where SBS-ers can come together to meet new people, have more fun, and live life to the fullest through the best experiences possible.

The SBS Manifesto: Make time for life. Life is having fun with friends and enjoying the journey. Life is too short not to have fun every day. Choose to live. Go on that trip you've dreamed of. Try. Fail. Learn. Succeed. Share amazing experiences with new friends and old and lead a fulfilling life. Have more fun.
