I strongly recommend you to sign up to a local gym or league to enjoy the sports you like most. I will share a few options with you, but first let's read Taisei's story:
"My friend Taisei, from Japan, came to Boston a months ago. He is 23 years old, and he loves to play soccer. Since he got here, he didn't meet many people who like to play soccer. He checks out this website, and learns that there are soccer leauges that he can sign up without knowing anybody. He checks the links in here, and surfs the web to find a soccer league nearby. He takes the addresses from the websites, and checks google maps to learn how close they are, and how to get there with public transportation. He finds a soccer leauge close to his house at a YMCA branch. He signs up for the league for $60 which would last 2 months. He is happy that he can play soccer in a league without knowing people. He just spent 30 minutes on the web to find out all the information."

Let's hear Phattharasuda's story first, then learn more about the sports in Boston:
"My friend Phattharasuda, from Thailand, came to Boston 3 months ago. She is 25 years old, and really curious about basketball. She definitely wants to watch a basketball game, but she just doesn't know where to start from. She comes to this website, and finds out that there are ticket agencies that she can buy tickets online. She uses the links below or googles the agencies for sports tickets in Boston. It is a good habit to compare the sites to find a better price. She finds 2 tickets for $50 each. The game is between Boston Celtics Vs Miami Heat. She makes a quick phone call to her friend to see if he wants to join, and then purchases the tickets online. She takes the address for TD Garden, and checks google maps to learn how to get there with public transportation. The next week, she goes to TD Garden to watch the game with her friend. She is happy that she can watch a competitive NBA game in the stadium. She just spent 30 minutes on the web to find out all the information."
