    I was a member of the Miami Nadadores, the gay swim team.

    I loved every minute of it. I was able to swim with some really fun, and attractive guys. I was a little worried cause I was a very serious swimmer. But these guys were good. We all met up for a swim meet in NYC during pride and had our picture show up in Genre. Fun. I definately recomend it.

    What teams are there in places everyone lives> I am in Austin and would love to find one. But I love to hear what's going on around the world.

    I am part of an unofficial gay wallyball league. What I mean about 'unofficial' is that we started on our own and pay for block times and do our own scheduling and such. We are very small now--only four teams (20 total players). 19 out of the 20 are openly gay. icon_biggrin.gif

    honestly, the gay sports world has probably been my best social outlet since coming out.

    I started playing water polo with West Hollywood Aquatics, and was very involved with that team for many years. Have been to 3 Gay Games (Amsterdam, Sydney, Chicago), and a few IGLA Championships.

    Since moving to Boston, i started playing rugby with the Boston Ironsides RFC - heading to the Bingham Cup in Dublin in June.

    So, yeah - get to meet good people in a healthy activity, outside of a bar [although rugby matches do end in drinkups... icon_smile.gif ] and travel to cool places.

    I highly recommend it.

    I started and still run THE GOFFERS, a gay and lesbian golf group in South Florida...predominately in Fort Lauderdale. We play every Wednesday and every Sunday, year-round. There have been off-shoot groups for lower handicap golfers on Mondays and beginners to pros on Saturdays. Check our outdated web site www.thegoffers.com or contact us for info at thegoffers@bellsouth.net

    Denver has a kick-ass gay Ice Hockey league - with some large and very fierce (and very hot) players.

    Here's a buddy of mine who gets LOTS of penalty box time----

    I played gay rugby for the Minneapolis Mayhem. They were a great group of guys and met some amazing guys while traveling and playing other gay teams around the country. There is a gay World Cup of Rugby (Bingham Cup) in Dulblin Ireland this summer.

    Back in Minneapolis, I know they also had gay softball (it was very popular), ice hockey, bowling, soccer as well as things like poker and cribbage. If you want to find a gay sport, I'm sure you could.
