Urban Athletics: Kickball for Grownups (Co-ed)

It's time to get kicking. Kick your neighbor. Kick your brother. Kick the big red ball. Just don't kick your dog. Game. On.

If you don't know, now you know ...

If you've never played the game of kickball as a kid you must have grown up on Mars. But as a quick primer, it's a game with rules similar to baseball -- except instead of using a bat to hit a little ball, you use your feet to kick a ball about 10x the size of a baseball. Kick the ball, run to the base, avoid getting your ball caught mid-air or yourself tagged out. Easy. And no athletic skill is necessary, just the ability to kick! Go out and practice now to get ready. Kick the postman when he delivers your bills. Kick that neighbor who won't turn down his stereo. Just get kicking!

If you haven't played the game in 20 years, here are the general rules we will be using with a few modifications. http://www.neighborhoodsports.us/Rules/KickballRules/tabid/155/Default.aspx

A $3.00 organization fee will be collected at this event, your host is in the running for hardest working person on meetup.

The important stuff ...

• This is a co-ed game so ladies don't be shy to sign up. And it doesn't matter if you have no athletic ability, you just have to be willing to have a little fun.

• Dress for physical activity! You'll be kicking and running so wear your sneaks, shorts and a t-shirt.

• Rain or similar un-favorable weather cancels the meetup. Not!

• Check the meetup site before leaving for last minute updates as well as my mobile phone number.

• Please DO NOT RSVP if you do not seriously plan to attend as space is limited. No flakes allowed! If you RSVP and I notice that you have a number of no shows or have a history of last minute cancellations, you will be removed.

• Sorry, no guests allowed for this one.

    Meetup was awesome! The big cheese does it again.

      Thanks, Vic. People, this man was in need of a wheelchair today and he still came out to play. If you give an excuse for not playing short of you getting hit by a city bus, it's baloney!

      I almost cried at third base. I was in quite a bit of pain out there

    Good gaming today my friends, my profound thanks to this that actually showed up. It was much appreciated and I look forward to balling with you again.

    Now for all you no shows, it's one strike and you're out in this league. Don't bother RSVPing for any of my events in the future. I don't like looking at the clock tick and wondering if enough players are going to show up for us to play. It's extremely inconsiderate to me, the people that do show up, and definitely to the people stuck on the wait list. I know your mamas raised you better than that. And if they didn't, dayum!!

    And for the people who gave the myriad of excuses why they can't play ... an hour before game time, you get the side eye from me and half a strike for that nonsense.

    I didn't bring my things with me to work because I thought it was going to rain today :(

    • Kevin

      I see someone didn't go to girl scouts -- remember their motto, "Be prepared!"

      Ugh!! I know and I was really looking forward to coming. I could kick myself right now. I will be going to the beach event on Sunday. :)

  • Andrea D.

    I'm not happy to say this but I will not be able to make it. I fell ill last night and had hoped to feel better today but I do not. I do hope someone on the wait list is able to join. I'm kicking myself right now :-(

    I know I just signed up, but due to an animal medical emergency (with my cat), I have to opt out. I'm seriously not a flake, and promise to attend the next event I RSVP to. Please don't toss me, thank you.

  • Nigel

    I have a graduation to go to

    1 · June 25

    • Kevin

      What, this kid wasn't sure they'd be graduating until a few days before? C'mon son, the whole ceremony will likely end up on YouTube, you can watch it when you get home after the game.

      2 · June 25

    • Nigel

      Actually they did tell me the same day you were looking to postpone it till Thursday. So I thought I was good but I'm not. Hey everyone will get half a show! Lol

      1 · June 25

  • Virginia

    Damn. Does this mean I can't come???? Agh. I only changed it to no because of the day!!!! That blows

    June 24

    • Shaan

      I am sure you can still come.....someone might not show up and can take their place.

      June 25

    • Virginia

      If it rains and the game is rescheduled then I'll be there. If it's tonight then I still can't make it.

      June 25

  • Kevin

    Ballers, looks like Mother Nature is going to throw us a bone tomorrow and postpone area precipitation to later in the week. For tomorrow my mobile number is[masked], contact me if you have problems.

    Please be on time as we can't start without enough players and don't forget to bring small bills or exact change for the Meetup fee. Let's get it on!

    June 24

  • Kevin

    Peeps, tomorrow's weather may not cooperate with us. If I need to cancel the game I'm going to reschedule it for Thursday. Make sure you check the comments tomorrow before you head to the ballfield.

    1 · June 24

  • Virginia

    Have a kickass game. Leave the trashcans alone! :) I have a friend in town and can't make it now.

    1 · June 23

  • Nigel

    Thats right, change your attendance to a "NO" if my mouth has scared you away. We want strong Lions not kittens playing, lol. Ppl that can knock over trash cans and still get up! But seriously it's all in fun, everybody come on out. You get a show and a game all for the price of 1.

    2 · June 23

    • Kevin

      Yeah, just like the Harlem Globetrotters, only with none of the skill.

      1 · June 23

    • Ariel J.

      Lmfao. Hey some people have skills.

      June 23

  • Dainia

    I'M SO EXCITED, I CAN'T WAIT!!

    1 · June 23

  • Kevin

    Ballers, if you're not 100% sure of your attendance for this game or if all the hot air coming out of Nigel's mouth has scared you off, please change your RSVP to NOT ATTENDING now. No shows don't fly for my events, especially games where we need enough people for teams. No shows will be blacklisted from attending my future events and you really don't want to miss out on the fun. Thanks.

    June 23

  • Damaris

    For ppl on the waiting list, how do we now if we have been moved to the "members who are attending " list?

    June 19

    • Nigel

      (Kevin Hart voice, yeah just saw the movie) Nobody ask you for your help!

      1 · June 20

    • alex p

      I am waiting for comment updates more than the game itself :)

      3 · June 23

  • Dainia

    Kevin- I'm on the wait list, can I still stop by the event in case someone doesn't show?:(

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
