Football is on here because it has to be. I myself have rarely enjoyed a game of beach football. But that’s not beach football’s fault, it’s the fault of everyone you play with. Football is historically one of the most difficult games to organize on a whim given the number of people required to play. Then, once you factor in the element of the beach and the fact that your crew is rarely 22 people deep, you’re gonna end up with a lot of lopsided games.

BUT, if you can manage to rally some eager bystanders to even out the numbers, you’re in for a real treat. Oh, and please remember to keep the competitive spirit at bay. You’re there to make new pals while experiencing the occasional moment of recreational sports glory. No need to blow out a knee out, Johnny Utah, this one’s not entirely about you.
