After graduating college, as our friends dispersed across the country, we were looking for a fun way to keep in touch and create new memories. Social media just wasn't cutting it.
So we kicked off a weekend dedicated to sports and games with friends and friends-of-friends. We split into teams and competed over a 3-day tournament on the fields, on the courts, and at the pong table. It's become an annual staple in our lives.
For us, Village Games is a college reunion with a competitive edge. For others, it's a chance to catch up with childhood friends, reunite with old fraternity or sorority classmates, or bond with colleagues.
Ultimately, Village Games is about joining a community of team players seeking fun competition, camaraderie with new and old friends, and a breath of fresh air.
