Come Kick it with Playworks

  1. Updates

Lace up your sneakers and come indulge with us in an afternoon of nostalgia over green grass, a wide open field, and a big, blue, bouncy ball.  Our 3rd Annual Playworks Denver Corporate Kickball Tournament offers local businesses the chance to give back to their community while enjoying a few hours of play and bonding with co-workers.

This year’s tournament will be held Friday, September 20 from 10am-4pm at City Park.  Festivities include opportunities for networking (or friendly trash-talking); complimentary jerseys for all participants; a catered lunch; and a bit of relaxed (or intense!) kickball competition against other Denver area businesses. The winning team will receive the Golden Kickball trophy and plenty of high fives.

Our hope is that each participant walks off the field feeling like a star, having played a fun game of kickball while making a valuable contribution to an organization that is working to improve the health and well-being of children in Colorado every day. 

All event proceeds support Playworks Denver, which provides increased opportunities for physical activity and safe, meaningful play to nearly 10,000 students at 18 low-income schools in the Denver Metro area.
