Our craziest Ace Hotel New York shuttle cockers are getting ready to burn up the nets this Saturday at RECESS on Governors Island. RECESS is free and open to all — with breathtaking badminton, island cruising and Balearic beats by Jin Seow and friends — so by all means come check out these stallions in action. Festivities kick off at noon. You can hop on the free ferry from Manhattan or Brooklyn and bring your bike or picnic basket with you. An Choi opens a tent with banh mi and RECESS will have one with beer and wine. Legend even has it there’s a Buttermilk Channel on the Brooklyn side of the island.

We traversed the rocky waters of the New York Harbor to Governors Island for a game of badminton with Recess New York in June’s first days of summer — our team played last year, too. Tomorrow afternoon, we’ll be throwing down our jock gauntlet at Chelsea Waterfront park for the 10th annual Adidas Fanatic/X Soccer Tournament. Stay tuned for shots of our blood, sweat and tears and watch us flatten our challengers with nary a glance.
