Adult softball, kickball and pickleball team registration opens

Adults looking for exercise in a fun environment should consider signing up for one of Concord's adult sports leagues - softball, coed kickball or pickleball.

The city offers one of the largest adult softball leagues in the Bay Area for all skill levels. Registration packets are available for the four-game spring tune-up league and 12-game summer season. The summer season starts April 12 and runs through July.

New this year is a Tuesday night Wooden Bat League. This is a great opportunity for current teams to find a different level of challenge or get together with new players and test strength and skill with a new team. A staple of pro baseball players, wooden bats bring the true Major League 'crack of the bat' to the game.

The Coed Kickball League offers a great social or team building experience. Tuesday night games offer a fun environment with a sprinkling of friendly competition and the opportunity to relive one of the best ways to spend school recess. The eight-game summer league starts the end of March.

For Adult Softball, Wooden Bat League and Coed Kickball League, visit for a registration packet and more information.

Don't miss an opportunity to learn to play one of the nation's fastest growing sports - Pickleball. The game combines elements of tennis, badminton and ping pong. Played on a badminton-sized court with a lower net, large wooden or composite paddles are used with a plastic whiffle ball. The sport is easy to learn and suited for all athletic abilities. Morning and evening Pickleball classes begin March 17; registration is currently available on-line at
