Connect, play and have more fun in greater akron!

Founded in 2016, Summit Sports & Social (formerly Stay in Play Recreation) is the premier provider of adult recreational sports leagues, fun-filled social events, and tournaments in the Akron/Canton area. We offer a variety of co-ed sports geared toward young professionals and multigenerational groups in the area. With a focus on sand volleyball, we also offer kickball, Spikeball, bocce ball, and dodgeball – and we’re just getting started.

From more laid-back approachable recreational leagues to serious and fiercely competitive groupings, we’re confident you won’t regret adding our routine dose of fun to your week. We aren’t just focused on sports. With pre and post-game gatherings and partners with the area’s best bars and breweries, we’re also a great way to make new friends!
