Highlight of the Week – An Easy Change

What is your ZogSports Highlight?

“My first experience with the ZogSports Family was when I first moved to the US from Italy and I joined ZogSports in New York. It was a great place to meet new friends. I knew moving to Philly would be an easy change for me, because I was sure I would be able to meet new amazing people through ZogSports Philly that would soon become friends. And I was 100% right!”

Highlight of the Week – Found a Home

What is your ZogSports Highlight?

I’ve played in almost all of the social sports leagues in Washington DC in practically every sport offered. But my friends and I have definitely found a home playing Saturday Softball with ZogSports as the “Fighting Randos.” I’ve dabbled in other sports with Zog, but there’s a sense of comfort whenever I set my gear bag down on the dugout benches at the New York Avenue Playground, put on my face mask, and jog out to the pitchers mound. So for me, any Zog highlight will always feature the “Randos” and over the course of the past couple of years, there are quite a few memories and classic moments that come to mind. However, nothing can top the Spring 2015 Championship Game between us and “Hit and Run.” The “Randos” and “Hit and Run” had been involved in a friendly rivalry during that spring.

Go Randos!

The Hawk Will Never Die

The 3 reasons why people are playing in social sports leagues this summer

Summer registration is open and leagues are selling out fast.  Why?

Here are the Top 3 Reasons why people are playing ZogSports this summer:

1) It’s hard to meet people in NYC…

meet people
unless you consider sharing a seat with a woman in headphones meeting people.
When you play ZogSports, you meet super fun people from day one!

2) You need that sun-kissed glow…

tanning2
and tanning booths are so 2006.
When you play ZogSports, getting that golden tan is an added perk!

3) You gotta keep up that beach bod…

beach body
since you finally mastered the post-workout selfie.
When you play ZogSports, you can break up your mundane workout routine!

Don’t live vicariously through Instagram this summer.  Spare yourself the FOMO and join a team with ZogSports!

Choose your sport:

BASKETBALL
BOWLING

DODGEBALL
FOOTBALL
HOCKEY
KICKBALL
SOCCER

Highlight of the Week -We Make Them Look Good

What is your ZogSports Highlight?

“The benefit of playing softball on Sundays this fall was that my team would get to watch the Eagles games together after our games.  Nothing like starting Sunday mornings off at the bar with your teammates.  Better yet, our record made the Eagles look good.”

-Becca, Cattywampus, ZogSports Philadelphia
