New sports club for 35 and older adults opens in Toledo

The A35 Sport and Social Club will initially offer basketball, volleyball and soccer for leagues and walk-in open gyms.

TOLEDO, Ohio – Staying active is important to your long-term health.

But are we in the slightly older generation really expected to keep up with teenagers and 20-year-olds?

Brad Mossing says he prefers competitive sports rather than lifting weights and running to stay in shape. But as he gets older and the responsibilities add up, including running his own flooring business, it becomes more difficult.

“But it’s hard to bring people together and most adult leagues around town don’t start playing until 9, 10, 11 am,” Mossing said. “So when you grow up you have to get up in the morning to go to work, it’s tough.”

That is why for years he dreamed of a sports and social club specifically aimed at adults aged 35 and over. After the business plan failed at the start of the pandemic last year, Brad and his wife are now ready to open their business – the A35 Sport and Social Club.

First up are the standard sports you would expect from any sports and social club; Basketball, volleyball and soccer. But Brad said they are always ready to add more sports if there is enough demand.

They’ll be offering three plans initially: walk-ins to an open gym for $ 10, monthly memberships for $ 20 to sign up for leagues, and a grab-bag Thursday with a different sport or activity every week Activity is being held.

“This is going to be the common area, we have a couple of lockers over there,” Brad said while giving a tour to WTOL. “That means that if members come in straight from work, they can throw their things in, throw a padlock on it. We have two changing rooms that we are currently renovating. “

The A35 will hold a grand opening event at its Marine Road location on August 28, with an open house, light drinks and friendly competition.

“We have a free throw competition, a push / set competition based on perseverance, who can push and bet the longest, and then target shooting for soccer,” Mossing said. : The winner of these three individual events wins all $ 200. “
