Sizzlin’ Summer Start



By Justin Jacobs

Let’s get going with the latest scoop.

ComePlayDetroit’s men’s basketball league had its spring basketball championship, with team Made in Detroit, captained by Alex Simpson, defeating team Greenberg in the finals.

Our co-ed tennis league kicked off the first week of June with 20 co-eds playing mixed doubles tennis at Birmingham Groves High School on Monday nights. Each week, a male and female are randomly paired together to play against another male and female randomly paired together. This allows everyone to play with different partners each week, and it’s a great way to meet others!

Our first official sand volleyball league started up this month in Midtown at Z’s Villa. The venue is a great local dive bar with an amazing outdoor sand volleyball court and lights so you can play all night. Between the outdoor televisions, delicious food, wide variety of beverages and horseshoes, there is enough to keep you busy all night long!

Our Sunday softball league in Southfield has seven men’s teams and nine co-ed teams, and more than 220 players coming out each week at Inglenook Park. You can bring your family out to watch some games (men’s: 10 a.m.-noon; co-ed: noon-1 p.m.) and enjoy the beautiful park with a jungle gym for the kids to play on … and the occasional ice cream truck.

And don’t forget, everyone is welcome to join us on Monday and Wednesday at Como’s in Ferndale, as our kickball teams go up for food and drinks after their games. Ask for the ComePlayDetroit special for two pitchers of beer and an extra-large pizza for only $28!
