League is an open group of people who gather to play sports and games invented by members of the community. Each game, its equipment, its playing field, and its strategies evolve through trial and improvisation. It’s problem-solving as play.
We gather on the last Sunday of each month, generally starting at noon. Drop in to exercise your strategic instincts, stretch rules and limits, and workshop ideas for action.
Elm Park is at 41 Ave @ Elm St in Vancouver-Kerrisdale.
