Social Sports Clubs In and Around Downtown SA

Trying to find a new way to have fun and exercise? We know you don’t normally associate the two words, but here’s a few suggestions that just might change your mind. Join these social sport clubs in central San Antonio for some good exercise, fun happy hours, parties and the opportunity to meet some new friends.

Pub Runs

Run a Tab Pub Run brings together lovers of both beer and running. With monthly themes that spice things up even more (the upcoming theme is Mardi Gras, so get your beads ready) and stops at cool bars in Downtown and Southtown, this is a prime opportunity to drink and run your ass off. Runs take place every first Friday of the month starting at 6:30 p.m. at Pat O’Brien’s near Alamo Plaza.


WAKA (World Adult Kickball Association) helps you relive your days on the playground … but with parties, theme nights and alcohol. Both individuals and full teams are welcome to register, so grab some friends and get together for some serious fun, or join to meet some new people. See the website for the full schedule and registration info.


Already experiencing the blues from the end of football season or do you just look really good in stripes? Try Alamo City Rugby Football Club. Not only will you learn to play a new sport, but you will also be giving back to the community. Every year, Alamo City Rugby participates in the Elf Louise toy drive and the Tower Climb for Cystic Fibrosis. Practice is every Tuesday and Thursday at Brooks Park (yes, it’s further south than Downtown, but these rugby players will kill us if we leave their club out) and no experience is necessary. The club offers both men’s and women’s divisions, so ladies, get ready to kick some butt and show the lads how it’s done.

Sand Volleyball

We may be a little far from the beach, but San Antonio Sports and Social Club brings the sand to San Antonio (or puts the SAN in sand volleyball?). Both individuals and teams are welcome. Players also get sweet food and drink specials from sponsor bars like the Hanger and Hofbrau Beer Garden. There are two leagues to register for, but hurry up, because registration ends February 28.
