Spring season officially begins this week for Sacramento’s very own sport and social club. Appropriately named Sacramento Sport and Social Club, this unique adult sports experience has something in store for all types of social rec athlete in the Sacramento area.
The idea first arose in 2008 when SSSC founder Brad Satterwhite and a co-worker of his wanted to get a group of their employee friends together for some good-natured out-of-office fun. They decided on bowling, but when the crew couldn’t find a local league that fit their needs, Satterwhite stepped up and played the role of league organizer. The office-mates started with 12 teams in what later became known as the Planning, Policy, Urban Development Bowling League (or ‘PUDL for short, named after their career field). 3 years later, PUDL is back for a Spring season and more popular than ever before. Longtime PUDL member Jim Clark says:
“PUDL gives you that chance to have a really great time with really great people. You will not find a bowling league that has as much fun both in the alley and out than we at PUDL do.”
But even this is just the tip of Sacramento’s iceberg.. Last year league members started asking about other sports and activities. Recognizing the potential there, Satterwhite has since set up leagues that appeal to the socially-inclined, co-ed crowd- adding Mini-Golf, Cornhole, and Beer Pong to the mix. There is even a league devoted entirely to team trivia, as well a golf league named “Putt-Putt League of Awesomely Fun People” (all members are guaranteed free putt-putt after the season ends.. nice!). Thus, Sac Sport and Social is creating a niche for itself as THE social league in greater Sacramento. You can almost think of it as a well-organized, neverending carnival for adults.
The commish also emphasizes rewards and prize opportunities for his participants. Sign up on the official SSSC website here and win a pair of movie tickets to Tower Theatre in Sacramento- just enter “Sportsvite” in the ‘Referred by/from’ section of the form.
