Adults Love Kickball and Play to Benefit Kids

  1. Updates
  2. Games & Activities

Corporate Kickball tournaments all across the country benefit students at Playworks schools.

Remember the red rubber ball, four bases and friends? "No boucies," the kicker yelled. The ball was pitched and the game began.

Kickball is simple and pure–a playground game. When we talk about the game, it brings on nostalgia. There aren’t any professional kickball players (though some people may call themselves professionals). No one was ever paid millions of dollars for kicking a red rubber ball over the fence. Instead, we play for love of the game, the childhood memories and the people.

This spring our staff in each city is bringing together adults for a day of nostalgia. Tournament style kickball, with all the fun and memories from our childhood playgrounds. Corporate Kickball tournaments help raise funds to run Playworks programs in their cities and create those childhood memories for today's children.

Freshen up on your kickball rules, gather your friends, family and neighbors, and get out there to play!
