Get social and stay active by signing up for a rec sports league in Portland

From futsal to pickleball, there are plenty of teams that could use your talents and camaraderie.

Players at Rose City Futsal

Rose City Futsal has two locations: Tigard and Northeast Portland.

Meeting new people and staying in shape — these are two things that get harder to do the older you get.

A way to accomplish both in one swoop is to sign up for a rec sports league in Portland. Here are a few to check out.

Rose City Futsal
Have fun year round with this smaller version of soccer that’s played inside on a hard court with five per side. Leagues are offered for all skill levels from D1 (Champions League) to D5 (Beginner), with men’s, women’s, and co-ed options available. And once you work up a sweat, you can hydrate with a craft brew at Clive’s Public House.

With any luck, Air Bud will be on your team.

Underdog Softball League
This organization is a hub for many sports in town — everything from cornhole to flag football. But, its INDY approach (where it groups individual registrants into teams) provides a lower barrier to playing softball, compared with leagues where you’re in charge of assembling a squad.

Portland Ultimate
This game involves teamwork, stamina, and speed as players work to throw a disc down the field. Leagues run throughout the year; but, if you’re not quite ready, there are pick-up games (not organized by Portland Ultimate) that are open to the community and a good place to learn.

If ice flows through your veins, this may be the sport for you. Member leagues are offered here fall, winter, and spring, while non-members can join Friday Friends games. Curlers must bring their own equipment.

Step to the net at this 18,000-sqft facility where members can reserve courts (or join open sessions) to play pickleball and soccer tennis, and bring visitors along as well.
