Best Family Friendly Sporting Events in Sacramento

If your family enjoys cheering for your favorite teams or watching particular sports in action, Sacramento doesn’t disappoint. Many of the city’s sports organizations offer events and games specifically designed for families of all types, and taking advantage of these opportunities means you’ll be assured a family-friendly outing that won’t waste your money.

XFINITY Family Packs: Sacramento River Cats

Buying tickets to several different entertainment venues can drain the bank account, which is why bulk packages are often a steal. The Sacramento River Cats offer family packs, which includes tickets to a River Cats game, Fairy Tale Town, and the Sacramento Zoo, as well as meal vouchers for the game night.

Upcoming dates for family packs include May 7, June 18, and July 23, 2011. The pack starts at $57, all inclusive, and you can also get a three-dollar AAA discount if you are a member.

There are other River Cats events throughout the summer that are sure to bring smiles to your kids’ faces. For example, children who join the Rookie Club (at no cost) receive free meal vouchers on each Tuesday night game and invitations to Dinner with Dinger.

Paws Pals & Putts Golf Tournament

Introduce the family to golf and help support the Sacramento SPCA. This is a great event to attend with many generations of family, from grandparents to young children, especially since the charity golf tournament directly benefits seniors who work with pets to achieve higher levels of independence.

Family members who golf might even want to participate in the tournament. If you live in or are visiting the Sacramento area during the weekend of May 9, the annual Paws Pals & Putts golf tournament presents a fantastic opportunity to get outside, watch a popular sport in person, and even celebrate the family pet.

If your family enjoys golf tournaments, you might enjoy going out for a night of put-put to inspire your kids’ interest in the sport. Many Sacramento area golf clubs also offer discounted lessons to kids who are interested in learning the game.

Sacramento Tennis Association Grand Prix

During the month of June, the youth and adult grand prix hosted by the Sacramento Tennis Association provides families with hours of entertainment. It’s a chance to learn more about tennis and to enjoy good company among other residents of your community.

In addition to watching all the adult and youth matches, there are also booths with food, gifts, and tennis products. Brush up on your game or just simply soak in the festivities with the family.
