The Stratham Parks and Recreation Department is hosting a Basketball Board Meeting on Tuesday, June 15th at 7:00pm at the Municipal Center to discuss the upcoming 2021-22 season. Lots of things are changing with youth sports and if you want you to be a part of the board and decision making, we hope you can join us.  

Do you know that youth sports in Stratham are organized by volunteer sports boards under the direction of the Parks and Recreation Department? We can't host these programs in town without VOLUNTEERS LIKE YOU!  


frisbeeULTIMATE FRISBEE is for adults over 30, men and women of all skill levels. Each week on Wednesday evening a group gathers at Stevens Field at 6:00PM. Balanced teams are made and scores are not kept. You will run a lot but you will be matched with someone of equal ability. We play a max of 7v7 and sub frequently. If we have 20+ people we will play 2 simultaneous games of 5v5. We have fun and we love to teach others to play. No pre-registration is required!
