Jamaica Plain Women’s Flag Football Association

You can’t get much more physical than this intramural league that takes over Jamaica Plain’s English High field each fall. In the four years of its existence, the league has grown to include more than 150 women in two divisions (including some fierce straight girls), and been responsible for not a few off-the-field passes. Make no mistake, these girls come to score, and the bruises they get are real. But the tradition of post-game brews at Doyle’s goes a long way toward soothing the pain.
