Beacon Citizen Network (BCN): a place for neighbors to get the word out, be heard and stay informed in all matters concerning Beacon, NY.



My husband and I were part of a Brooklyn bar league league for years and would love to find or start a league here if there is any interest! No great skill needed just fun to get out and play! Does anyone know of any mens or co-ed leagues in the area?

I would be very interested in joining a league or just being part of some pickup games. My family and I are moving from Brooklyn to Beacon in June. I've been a part of a group that played games in Prospect Park every Sunday for the last 17 years and I used to play in a co ed bar league for a long time as well. It would be great if this happens. I'm not ready to give up playing softball just yet.

Hey guys-

Good news! I spoke with the parks and rec dept, and I am working on getting together the permits for some pick up games this summer- one a month June- September. The fields are pretty booked this year already and until we get some folks out to play, it'd be tough to set up an official league. But based on the turnout, if there is enough interest, we can hopefully get a league going next year!

This will be a co-ed league, and i will post as soon as I get dates confirmed! Any and all are welcome (18 and over) and will be on saturdays or sundays.

More details to follow, but the parks dept was real willing to work together on it to make it happen and get the word out to the community.

Once I get the official go ahead, I'll set up an e mail address to contact and start getting the word out.

This will be real fun! Glad to see there is already some interest!

Thanks so much! I left a message with the Parks dept- I'll let you know what they say. I'd love to get a permit and start a co-ed league on the weekends (sat or sun) if there is any time on the fields in memorial park. We could maybe even get local businesses to sponsor the teams to help with the costs of the permit.

I will keep you posted and thanks so much for the info on the current leagues! They'd be great except for weeknights are tough for us to get out to. (and my husband is just shy of 35!)

Beacon does have softball teams for men and women. I belonged to the women's league for a long time,(a long time ago!) I think if you contact the Beacon Recreation Dept., they will give you the contact info. I am pretty sure they post info in the Beacon Free Press and on the Beacon Muni. channel 22 and also try the COB website.
