Flag football kicks off spring season

Add this share


The National Flag Football League of Atlanta was able to get in their opening day, playing three games on Saturday before storms swept through and drenched the city. Games were shifted to Central Park in Midtown after the league was booted from Peachtree Hills Park, which was serving as a backup since new drought restrictions banned organized sports from Piedmont Park earlier this year.

The league, in its third year, is fielding six teams this season. Games take place on Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and wrap up in late June with the league championship. Then the NFFLA will assemble a travel team to practice and take part in Gay Superbowl 8, where teams from across the U.S. will compete in Salt Lake City in early October.
