What is Social Boston Sports?

Social Boston Sports is a rapidly growing sport and social community in Boston of over 35,000 awesome young professionals. We run traditional sports leagues, new and obscure sports, white water rafting trips, ski trips, and parties like New Year’s Eve and Halloween. If there is something fun going on Boston, it’s likely that we had something to do with it.

We work hard and play hard. We love doing what we do and come to work each day with unique enthusiasm.
