Chattanooga Times Free Press - ChattanoogaNow - - MUSIC - STAFF RE­PORT

If you con­sider your­self the baroness of beer pong or the king of corn­hole, Chat­tanooga Sports Leagues has a com­pe­ti­tion for you.

The third in­stall­ment of the CSL’s Bar Olympics, a so­cial sport­ing event, re­turns to the city’s nightlife on Tues­day, Nov. 29.

Geared to­ward young pro­fes­sion­als, the four­week com­pe­ti­tion pits teams against one an­other in a series of fun bar games. A team will con­sist of four play­ers and must have a min­i­mum of one fe­male.

This sea­son’s games in­clude beer pong, darts and corn­hole. A fourth is still to be de­ter­mined.

“The Bar Olympics is an in­sanely fun ex­pe­ri­ence that can’t be found any­where else in Chat­tanoo- ga,” says Tommy Travers, owner of 3rd Deck Burger Bar, where the com­pe­ti­tions will be held. “It is a great way to meet some other so­cial young pro­fes­sion­als — on a Tues­day.”

Chat­tanooga Sports Leagues is a lo­cal start-up that com­bines or­ga­nized adult sports with fun so­cial events for area young pro­fes­sion­als. The or­ga­ni­za­tion has 4,300 mem­bers since its found­ing three and a half years ago, says spokes­woman Mad­die Brown in a news re­lease.

Leagues ex­ist for a va­ri­ety of sports, in­clud­ing bas­ket­ball, bowl­ing, dodge­ball, flag foot­ball, kick­ball, soc­cer, soft­ball, ten­nis, Ul­ti­mate Fris­bee and vol­ley­ball.

In Bar Olympics, one event is played each week, with two play- in games fol­lowed by a sin­gle-elimi- na­tion tour­na­ment, ac­cord­ing to Brown. Teams will ac­cu­mu­late points based on their weekly fin­ish, and an over­all win­ner will be de­clared af­ter the fourth week.

Cost is $25 per player to join. Travers says 3rd Deck Burger Bar, lo­cated at the top of Pier 2 next to the South­ern Belle, will have ex­clu­sive food and drink spe­cials for league play­ers.

“It’s the per­fect way to break up the monotony of the work­week,” he says. “You’ll ac­tu­ally look for­ward to Tues­day com­ing around.”

There are a l i mited num­ber of slots avail­able. Teams can reg­is­ter at www.
