Hello lovely forum people.

As a recent(ish) arrival from the UK, and having become a tad fitter since arriving in Austin, I thought it might be fun to dust off the old football (soccer) boots and join a rec.team. Actually I'd need to buy some football boots its been that long!

I'm not looking for anything serious as, quite frankly, I was only ever a very average player and even that was a long, long time ago. I'm not hopeful of finding the classic pub team where the odd diversion to the touchline for a glug of beer is encouraged , but I am looking for somewhere to have a laugh and a run out every now & then. I guess I fit into the (gulp) seniors section being oh so slightly the wrong side of 40.

Anyone have a recommendation for a team that might fit the bill? Oh, and anyone for cricket?

Many thanks in advance.

first of all welcome.

we do play soccer (or, the real 'football' ) every saturday. The membership is very limited and i am not sure if i can invite any one. I'll check with some guys there and let you know.
And about cricket: there is Dell, there is IBM, NI, AMAT...and lot of South Asian folks working there. Go figure...! there is even leagues playing in Austin. I have friends playing there. Will get you some info on cricket as well.

Lots of cricket played up here in Williamson county at the Greater Williamson park on 1431 on the weekends. I see them all the time when I am out there watching other sports so there might be a team website or something, check with the YMCA in your area they may have some leads also. Good luck

Thanks to all of you for your replies. AGA and PV - I appreciate the time you might take to provide further info.

Neddy - I will be sure check out the cricket at Greater Williamson Park (I just found something on the mighty Interweb), in fact I might go and make some cucumber sandwiches and a pitcher of Pimms right now in preparation!

Well, I found this info such as it is...

Austin Men's League
Austin Co-Ed League
and the new indoor soccer on Slaughter and Manchaca (soccer zone) I think.

Sorry I dont have the links, but that should get you started!

Good Lick!

I wonder if you ever succeeded finding a team/league... I'm moving to Austin from Madrid, where I play every weekend with the seniors league (most of us over 40, but very fit). I can play 11-a-side, or 7-a-side or 5-a-side. Any suggestions? The link provided by AGA does not offer info on adult teams or leagues, and the one provided by Rose doesn´t exist anymore. I realize the original post is 3 years old (time flies).
Thanks for your help.
Rafa
