Whether you’re playing ’em or watching ’em, sports in the spring and summertime are unbeatable.
We polled nearly 5,000 members to ask about your favorite sports to watch and play over the next few months. (Spoiler alert: baseball remains America’s pastime!)
Baseball is the top sport to watch over the summer – sure, it has the longest season (April – October, for the lucky ones, with 162 games played), but the MLB All Star Game and MLB World Series grabbed the viewership of a combined 51% of you!
As for playing it?
About 1/5 of members indicated they would play a game of baseball this summer. Of the 718 members who participate in recreational leagues, 38% play baseball or softball.
Other top sports for rec league players were basketball (21%), tennis (13%), kickball (10%), and golf (8%). Most are playing in leagues with friends.
But there’s more to summer sporting than organized games! What about the backyard, public park, or sandy beach activities that need no league?
Beach volleyball won out with 19%, but classics like catch, frisbee, and badminton made a solid showing.
