Teams, individuals wanted for new co-ed football league

Feb. 26, 2010
The department is starting a new co-ed adult sports league and kicking it off with football.
“The department has focused primarily on giving children in the city the opportunity to play sports, but the addition of this new league will give adults the opportunity to get out and have some fun playing sports too,” said department Director J.R. Pope.
Adults age 21 and older and teams of adults are invited to register for co-ed flag and two-hand touch football on March 3 and March 4.
Registration for a team of 15 adults is $600. Additional team members will cost $30 each, and individuals can register to play for $45.
There will be two divisions of play: one for co-ed flag football and one for two-handed co-ed touch football, which will be less competitive and more social. The games, including playoffs, will be played on Saturdays from April 10 through June 5.
Registration will take place between 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Blanton House, located at 700 Blanton Ave. near the Byrd Park tennis courts. Go to for registration forms. All checks or money orders should be made payable to Richmond Parks, Recreation & Community Facilities. No charge cards will be accepted.
