ZogSports’ Mission: Bring People Together, Create Highlights, Make a Difference.
Thousands of people join ZogSports every season to keep playing and make new friends. Often, these new friendships blossom into beautiful relationships.
Andrew met Marisa in a ZogSports Basketball league five years ago. This month, Andrew came to us and asked if we could help him plan his proposal to Marisa at that very same gym where they first met. Here is their story:
Marisa and I met playing in a casual coed basketball league a little over five years ago. I moved to NY after college so I thought it might be a good way to meet people. Our team didn’t win that many games but it didn’t matter, we ended up bonding over how terrible our team was. I started emailing Marisa separately and she invited me to join her ZogSports football team. We started dating a few months later and we’ve been playing with the same football team for 5 years now.
[For the proposal] I wanted to do something that would surprise her and something that would take her back to when we first met. Earlier that night after I asked her to sub for my friend’s volleyball team. [When we walked in] she said to me, “Hey – Isn’t this the gym where we first met?” It was perfect. I could tell by her reaction when she walked into the gym that she had no idea it was going to happen.
People who join ZogSports are generally looking to meet people and have fun. It helps to meet someone while doing something you love, like playing sports, because you know right away that you have shared interests. I know a few couples who have met through ZogSports and I don’t think I ever would have met Marisa if it weren’t for ZogSports!
We couldn’t be happier for Andrew and Marisa. Congratulations!
