Adult Sports Leagues
16" Softball League
As many of our seasonal residents migrate north to recreate from the Chicago area during the summer, the passion for 16" unique to the Windy City followed. This storied league has been located on the west end of Geneva Lake for years and has been played with the passion and panache reminiscent of Chi-Town.
We are not “officially” a coed league, but we do encourage teams to be coed, which are reflected in the rules. Ultimately, our goal is designed to protect the league and encourage its growth.
