Summer seems the perfect time to join an amateur sports league and spend sunny afternoons out on the field. But for many sports, such as softball and baseball, summer registration has already closed. For sports like rugby and volleyball, the spring season is almost over. So what does that leave for adults who want to get in the game now? Soccer is the big one, but Santa Fe has
opportunities for tennis and golf as well.
