Are you a gay man or woman who is looking to get out of the house more and join a group of like-minded individuals with similar interests? While there are likely a variety of gay-related groups or clubs you could join for a bit of fun, if you are looking to be more physically active, perhaps it's time to check out your local gay kickball league. That's right -- gay kickball. Here are three reasons to join today.
1. You Already Know How to Play
There's a reason even five-year-olds can play kickball. The sport is extremely simple to pick up and learn and there are really no complicated rules to follow. Just kick the freaking ball and start running. Also, consider that it's not like someone is going to try and blow the ball right past you like in baseball or softball. A kickball usually comes rolling in nice and slow, allowing you to kick it properly. In other words, you don't have to be the world's greatest athlete to have fun in a kickball league.
2. It's More About the Community Than the Sport
To be clear, if you are going to show up for any sports league, you should come prepared to try and win. At the same time though, the nature of kickball makes it clear that it doesn't have to be super serious all the time. By joining a league of others just like you, you'll be taking part in a fun group activity where you will be able to connect with people who probably have other similar interests in addition to kickball. Who knows, maybe you'll make some new friends that you can hang out with long after the game is over.
3. Judgement-Free Zone
Perhaps the best reason to join a gay kickball league is that you'll know you'll be surrounded by peers for at least an hour or more during every match. In other words, you'll be in a safe space where you can truly be yourself without worrying about what anyone else will think.
If you're looking to get out of the house and socialize more as a gay man or woman, check out your local gay kickball league today. Kickball is a relatively easy sport to understand, you don't have to be a tremendous athlete to have fun doing it, and you'll like make some new friends in the process. In the end, that's really what it's all about.
