Oh, what’s in a name? A lot when it comes to your social sports team. You want it to be so striking that people hype up your team before you even step onto the court or field. Try these tips to make a name that stands out!

Alliteration Nation
Pick a team name where each word starts with the same letter. Example: if you’re playing volleyball, maybe you go with Bitchin’ Bumps.

Sports Oriented
Involve something about the sport you’re playing. Example: a dodgeball team could go by Balls To The Walls.

Pop Culture
Playing off an already well-known movie or book is great because everyone will understand your name. Example: if you’re rather outta shape, you could call yourselves The Fat and the Furious.

Current Events
Think about what’s going on in current news, especially the sports world. Pick a name that pokes fun at a well-known real-life event. Example: for a cycling team, Lance Thinks We’re Dope.

Offbeat Approach
When all else fails, just go with something goofy and funny. Example: any sort of team could be Untitled David Schwimmer Project. Hey, people will remember it!
