GET YOUR SWEAT ON
April 14, 2007
You don’t have to wait until 2016 to catch Olympic fever. These 15 leagues will pump you up in everything from rowing to kickball—and who knows? By the time the Games hit the track/pool/mat, you could be mistaken for a member of Team USA.
Holy sports offerings, Batman! If you’ve ever had a hankering to try rock climbing, kayaking, dancing and more—or want to hone your superstar skills—Chicago Sports and Social Club is the place for you. Most leagues are co-ed and run for seven weeks, plus playoffs. As with most other sports sites, you can sign up with a group of friends or coworkers, or test the waters solo. Fees vary by activity, but the money will get you a team T-shirt. Sorry, kids: You’ve got to be 21 or older to participate.
