Urban Athletics: Kickball for Grownups (Co-ed)

  • Jul 17, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

*** No need to RSVP "NO" if not attending ***

You people can't seem to get enough of this game so ... Let's. Do. It. Again.

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!

And after the games we'll unwind with a picnic and reminisce over our on field heroics. Bring food, drink and a blanket to relax on.

A $2.00 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.

    This was so great! Thanks, Kevin for organizing the whole thing and keeping very accurate tracking of how many outs there were during the game ;). I'm sure to be back for more fun!

      I blame it on the heat not allowing me to think straight. :) I need to get one of those clicky strikes and outs counters that umpires use.

    Good gaming tonight my friends, thanks for coming out. And it was refreshingly quiet on the field tonight, I could hear the birds chirping and the butterflies fluttering. That must have been conducive to my win.

      Lmao, lmao. Maybe...maybe. The kryptonite that is the All Stars shall return. I hope that you can fight through for another win.

    Sorry Kevin, working late again. I'll have to stick to weekends

    July 17, 2013

  • Puneet

    Ok, I have never played kickball (or baseball/softball). I just read the rules, is it possible to get a quick refresher/tricks of the trade before the game?

    Not going to be able to make it after all, stuck dealing with something at work. I hope everyone has an awesome time, will catch you next time!

    Folks, my mobile number is[masked] if you have any problems later. Please try and be on time for this event as coming late delays our start. Also, if you could have exact change for the meetup fee I would appreciate it. Thanks.

    People, it's going to be a warm evening so make sure you bring plenty of cool drinks to rehydrate yourselves during the game.

    The All Stars have there bye (were taken off) week this week so we will not be there to continue our dominance. So hopefully the jinx will come to an end. Also for those that love the loud competitive nature. We will be back to our regular schedule next kickball gm. That's all Folk's!!!!

    Kickballers, if you haven't played the game in 20 years, here are the general rules we will be using with a few modifications.

    Let's get it on!

  • Ian C.

    There's a lot of people in the waiting list.

    July 16, 2013

    • Kevin

      Ian, I am trying to do this weekly so if those on the wait list don't get to play now, they can the next game.

  • Dilu B.

    I put my name but I don't know how to play!!! lol

    July 16, 2013

  • Ian C.

    Can we create 2-4 teams?

    July 16, 2013

  • Ian C.

    Maybe

    July 15, 2013

    • Kevin

      Ian, even though you are on the wait list, I operate my events by the general rule of no maybe RSVPs. Either you need to be all or reserve RSVPing until you are sure. My events are usually limited in attendance so maybe RSVPs aren't fair to the people waiting for a confirmed spot, but even more important, maybes don't work when you need a specific number of people for team activities and are counting on everyones attendance. Thanks.
