Breaking News! After years of self-doubt, insecurity, and egregious mispronunciations of Stay In Play Recreation, we have decided to change our name. Honestly, we never really loved our name and we got sick of hearing- Is it Stay And Play? Stay N’ Play? Play and Stay?
Oh yeah also, there’s that whole, we are building a brand new sand volleyball facility and what better way to celebrate that space than a brand new and improved name and logo?
Ok, ok, so what’s the name? Our new name is Summit Sports & Social.
In all seriousness, for our vision moving forward, we believe this name underlines who we are and where we are going. We intend to have broader sports and social opportunities, not only in downtown Akron but all over Summit County.
Our amazing new logos and branding kit were all designed by Akron native and Firestone High School graduate, Katie Brenn. Although she now resides in Seattle, she’s an Akronite through and through, and still plays volleyball with us when back in Northeast Ohio to visit family and friends.
We have some absolutely incredible things planned for 2019 and beyond and we couldn’t be more excited about the path forward for Summit Sports & Social. We were strongly considering Akron Sports and Social until we realized the very unfortunate acronym that comes along with that name. We love and appreciate all of you and hope to see every single one of you out this summer whether it’s at our new court or at a social event at a bar or restaurant!
