Over 700 Participate in Overtime Sports Club's Inaugural Season

Recreational Sports Leagues Keep Miami's Young Professionals Busy After Work

MIAMI, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 26, 2007 -- Eight months after the initial draft of their business plan, Overtime Sports Club's owners, Jonathan Broder and David Rich, can smile, even if they can't relax. With over 700 young professionals participating in their recreational sports activities plus regular social events, these two entrepreneurs are constantly on the go.

On Wednesday evenings at Pace Park over 150 Overtime Sports Club members play flag football and volleyball as the umpire's whistle echoes off of the empty buildings under construction along Bayshore Drive. On Thursday and Friday evenings you can watch over 600 young professionals playing kickball at Bicentennial and Peacock Parks. Demand has been so high that an additional kickball league is forming now for Sundays at Jose Marti Park, across the street from Finnegan's On the River just off of Brickell.

Overtime Sports Club hopes the development in downtown Miami helps it grow into an organization similar to the sports and social organizations in New York, Chicago, and Denver which boast thousands of members. With over 700 participants in their inaugural season, Overtime Sports Club is attracting Miami's young professionals, sports enthusiasts, and corporate sponsors.

"We're continuing to grow and offer more sports activities. We are looking to roll out basketball, softball, bowling, and dodgeball in the next few months. Of course, our tennis and bootcamp classes continue to run year round," said Broder.

Make room in your social calendar because Overtime Sports Club will keep you entertained. Some of the social events cater to young professionals' love of food and drink, while other events seek to satisfy thrill seekers. From wine tastings, sushi classes, and lobster bakes, to shark fishing and sky diving, Overtime Sports Club offers it all.

Broder said that most of the members are groups of friends, newcomers to Miami, and individuals who are looking for a fun way to meet new people. Individuals can register for sports activities as a "free agent" or with their friends and co-workers. Numerous corporate teams have signed up with Overtime Sports Club, and even Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines offers its employees discounts to Overtime Sports Club events.
