Boston is the city of sports. Everywhere you look, there’s an ad for sports betting or the next Celtics game. This city is full of sports and recreational activities that many don’t even know about. So, if you’re looking to add some outings to your calendar, look no further.

Of course, let’s start with home base: the Emerson Lions. Check out these upcoming home games, and get your spirit on! 


The Lions will play a homestand with games against Lasell University on Feb. 29, Curry College on March 1, Framingham State University on March 5, and Vermont State University on March 7—all at the New England Baseball Complex. 


Women’s Lacrosse will play Nichols College at Rotch Field on March 5 at 6 p.m. Men’s Lacrosse will face Lassell University on March 6 at 6 p.m.

Men’s Volleyball

Men’s Volleyball will play their next home game on March 21 against Lasell University at 6 p.m. at the Piano Row Bobbi Brown and Steven Plofker Gym.


Women’s Tennis will play Nichols College on March 2 and Men’s Tennis will play their next home game on March 12 against Ohio Wesleyan University at 7 p.m. at the Bobbi. 

Now, if you want to venture off-campus and immerse yourself in the Boston sports culture, there’s no better place than TD Garden. Whether you’re a fan of the Celtics or Bruins, your home team is visiting, or you’re just a casual viewer, the Garden is sure to satisfy you with a competitive matchup and a variety of food and drinks.  

Boston Celtics

If you’re interested in seeing Dallas’ dynamic duo of Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving, the C’s will take on the Mavericks on March 1 at 7:30 p.m. If you’d rather catch the Splash Brothers in action, Boston will take on the Golden State Warriors on March 3 at 3:30 p.m.

Boston Bruins

The Bruins will face the Edmonton Oilers on March 5 at 7:30 p.m. and, if you’re interested in seeing the NHL’s first and third-place goal scorers face off, the Toronto Maple Leafs on March 7 at 7 p.m. 

We understand that watching sports isn’t everyone’s thing, so here are some fun off-campus recreational activities that’ll have you feeling like you’re “in the game,” too. 

Axe Throwing Club

Hop on the Green Line and get off at Haymarket to head to 42 Cross St., where ATC offers an axe-throwing experience that welcomes everyone with all skill levels.

Kings Entertainment 

Kings Entertainment at 60 Seaport Blvd. offers bowling, billiards, and arcades in a sleek retro environment. 

Putt Shack

Also in Boston’s Seaport, Putt Shack offers “tech-infused” mini golf along with live weekend DJs.

SPIN Boston

At 30 Melcher St., SPIN is a ping pong social club with 14 Olympic-caliber professional ping pong tables and a full-service restaurant.

Skating at Frog Pond

Want to get active and do something fun without going too far off Emerson’s campus? Winter ice skating on the Frog Pond at the Boston Common will run until March.

Whether you’re a big sports fan or want to explore the sports-related activities Boston has to offer, these options will bring you a thrill while showing you around the city.
