Klamath Falls is a great place to live for the active adult who enjoys the excitement and camaraderie of a recreation-based sports league. Many adults that played sports throughout their school-aged years still enjoy competitive activities and adult sports leagues can help accomplish that urge to compete.
Others* have made a promise to themselves to stay in shape and running on a treadmill doesn’t sound too appealing. That’s when they can use sports to mask the dreaded “getting in shape” mindset through competitiveness.
*Every Adult that Played Sports Growing Up
There is no better feeling than draining that jumper or catching that long ball in a competitive environment to gain confidence, energy and new relationships. That’s what adult sports can deliver. So, let’s jump into the list.
6 ADULT SPORTS LEAGUES IN KLAMATH FALLS
KLAMATH CORNHOLE LEAGUE
One of the fastest growing recreational sports in the country is cornhole. The sport has begun to replace the sport of horseshoes because of its ease of play and portability of the setup. Cornhole can surely be played by children, but it has quickly grown into an adult scene as the physical requirements are less than that of a soccer or football league.
The Klamath Cornhole League is one of the newest and fastest growing adult sports leagues in Klamath Falls. There are singles and doubles divisions available and the organizers make sure to add fun by doing cash contests, blind draw teams and occasional tournaments to really test your skills. Winners of the league can expect to take home some cash, pride in winning the league and confidence to take to the upcoming tournaments.
The league and tournaments are operated by OG Boards. You can find more information on Cornhole in Klamath Falls by visiting their webpage or messaging them on the facebook group page.
BASIN UNITED SOCCER
There is no doubt that some of the best sports facilities in Klamath Falls are right in our own backyard at Mike’s Fieldhouse & Steens Sports Park. One of the quickest growing adult leagues in the area is because of the Adult Soccer League at the facility.
