Justin, a Bentley University alum, talks about starting Social Boston Sports and our continuing philosophy. Check it out! (video credit: Bentley University)
Social Boston Sports® (SBS) was created in January 2007 by four young professionals, Justin Obey, Brian Shaw, John Sharry, and Frank Knippenberg with the goal of keeping the fun we had in college alive post-college. Today, SBS is a rapidly growing community of SBS-ers who love to have fun and live life to the fullest!
We sell fun. Specifically, we provide our community members (whom we lovingly call "SBS-ers") with an organized way to get involved in coed recreational sports leagues, events, and adventure trips throughout Boston.
Our Mission: To be the #1 destination for fun in Boston for young professionals where SBS-ers can come together to meet new people, have more fun, and live life to the fullest through the best experiences possible.
Meet the Team!
Justin Obey -- Co-Founder and CEO
A Boston native, Justin graduated from Bentley University with a degree in Economics and Finance. While in college, Justin worked for Red Bull, North America, served as a Resident Assistant, and spent his time organizing pub crawls for his senior class. After spending 6 months in Vienna studying and going on weekend trips all over Europe, he came back to the States with a mission to improve the social sports scene in his hometown. Justin founded Social Boston Sports® in order to create an organization for people living in Boston to come together through athletic activities, social nights, weekend trips and everything in between. In his spare time, Justin loves to ski, mountain bike, play lacrosse, swim, go sailing, kayaking, and generally be active.
