organized sports?

Come October, a small group of us will be relocating to STT. While packing, we need to know if it would be worth it to bring any of our sporting goods with us (ie Baseball mitts, golf clubs, etc.). Are there any organized leagues, such as softball, volleyball, golf et. al. or are there just recreational get togethers every so often?

Hello Scott,

You an play golf at Mahagony Run Golf Course on St. Thomas.

Volleyball is more of a rereational thing... you can pick up a few games at Iggies at Bolongo Bay for fun or Sapphire on Sundays.

Softball - there are organized teams.
