Playing in shorts?

The humid and hot summer of FL is quickly approaching and I'm looking for ways that will keep me cooler and able to play longer in the heat. Has anybody ever tried playing in athletic type shorts with some knee pads on? Seems like this would cut down on weight and keep you cooler in the heat. Any predicted problems with these compared to pants? I wear Empire slide shorts every time and I have Eclipse knee pads. I figure get some shorts with a draw string waist and hopefully this will work out. Thoughts?

Make sure your field will let you. Our local field won't let people play in shorts for safety reasons.

I did it last summer when it was hot out, just shorts though no knee pads. I was playing snake too, so yes they were red, but it wasnt anything painful or out of the ordinary

the grass is only in patches. it's just dirt and rocks near the bunkers from the lack of maintenance.

I hear you there lol an unexpected slide on hot dry turf leaves your legs pretty raw.

To the OP, wear some knee pads and you'll be okay.

I play in shorts on those hot/humid august days. I have a pair of Dye shorts and they offer some decent padding. I'd recommend wearing some knee pads. That should cover you in most air/hyper speed. if you plan on any woods action, I'd advise against shorts though.

I have a pair of long kahki shorts that I wear with knee pads.

Works great but the long sock idea mentioned above might be a good idea; Your shins and calves will get a little messed up depending on how hard you play but again as stated before its nothing painful or out of the ordinary.

I have play wearing my kilt. The tourney was fine with it. Played in shorts in Germany people thought I was strange but if you don't mind scraps and stuff like that. Just make sure your field will let you.

I use shorts and dye pants. Shorts=lighter, cooler Pants=more padding.

This is what Im doing this summer, **** pants on texas 90-100 degree weather. Im using some really nice knee pads and slider shorts though. Not the paintball ones because they suck, more like these.


Btw Im going to use some nike shorts that are for running, since that'll give me a ton of mobility.
