It's not just for jocks!

When you think of sports, you usually think of ripped, athletic men and women sweating and running and tackling and any number of other extremely stereotypical things, right?

Well, the World OutGames are looking to change all that. And in 2017, the host city of Miami, Florida is breaking new ground by welcoming some of the most unique events to date!

Sure, they're hosting rugby, rowing, track and field, tennis — the sports you'd expect. But here are seven of the events we didn't expect to show up at the world's most welcoming sports competition event.

1. Billiards

Want to rack some balls? This is your place.

2. Chess

A six pack won't help you win this battle of the brains!

3. Poker

P-p-p-poker face, p-p-poker face!

4. Dominos

No, not the pizza (although, that would be amazing).

5. Country Western Dance

Save a horse and ... dance with a cowboy!

6. Flag Football

Relive the nightmare that was high school P. E.!

7. Bowling

Don't be a turkey, we're sure you have a strike to spare!

Want to particpate? Make sure you check out the World OutGames Miami website for all the details, including a complete list of competitive category and cultural events. The World OutGames are open to anyone, regardless of gender identification or sexual orientation. So make sure to mark your calendars for May 26 through June 4, 2017 — you won't want to miss it!
