The 1st Annual Playworks Corporate Kickball Tournament was held on June 4th at Cheviot Hills Park and was a huge success! There were over 100 participants from 7 corporate teams: The Jim Henson Company, Terra Matrix Media, Pixel Liberation Front, The Revere Group, SingerLewak, a team of alums from UCLA Anderson, and a team of individuals from World Adult Kickball Association (WAKA) and 15 volunteers.
We also had some great sponsors: Whole Foods provided the beverages, Corner Bakery catered lunch, and Jack FM (93.1) was the entertainment! For the corporate participants, it wasan afternoon of fun in the sun with professional adults playing kickball and engaging in healthy competition as part of a unique, fun team building event. Each team had spiffy jerseys, and there was an awards ceremony for the Kickball Champion and the Runner-up. Pixel Liberation Front won the final championship game and was awarded the trophy, and UCLA Anderson's team was a close second. And, best of all, the proceeds from the event went to support the Playworks program and the very important work of rescuing recess at 13 local elementary schools and positively impacting 7,500 kids in Los Angeles every day.
Next year's Tournament is planned for June 24th, and we invite new and returning teams to join us for what is sure to be the most talked about Kickball Event Los Angeles has ever seen!
