Social Leagues, Baltimore’s adult social sports league company, has moved its offices from Betamore to City Garage.
Known locally as Baltimore Social, Social Leagues is graduating from Betamore and plans to expand its staff in Baltimore and nationally at the new facility. The company also plans to increase its staff at BmoreKid Sports, a nonprofit that offers free sports leagues to youth in underserved communities founded by Social Leagues CEO Giovanni Marcantoni.
“We’re extremely grateful to the team at Betamore, without whom we couldn’t have grown so fast,” said Marcantoni in a statement. “This move aligns the Social Leagues and Plank Industries brands, through which we believe we can achieve the goal of providing a free play experience for a child for each adult who plays in one of our leagues.”
The new space will accommodate at least 20 employees. Social Leagues currently has six full-time employees in its Baltimore office and 15 full-time employees across the country, plus 800 part-time employees. In New York, the Social Leagues recently completed a merger of its New York office with NYC Social, creating the second-largest adult social sports league in New York City, the company said.
Social Leagues will continue to be a Betamore member and will receive member benefits including access to Betamore’s network of entrepreneurs, startups, businesses and mentors, the company said in a statement.
“We’re thrilled with Social Leagues’ success locally and nationally,” said Betamore CEO Jennifer Meyer in a statement. “Social Leagues is a great example of what happens when a startup’s vision is supported with the kind of resources and mentorship that Betamore offers. We can’t wait to see how this move helps Social Leagues continue to grow.”
Social Leagues has sports leagues in six cities across the U.S. with 100,000 participants annually. The company started out as a 16-person bocce ball league in Federal Hill in 2010.
