Were you picked last for kickball in grammar school? Were you ever referred to as “easy out” in dodgeball? Well now that you’ve finally grown and have spent some time in a gym, here’s your chance to redeem yourself.
The Los Angeles Dodgeball Society (“Winning is for Losers”) is expanding its leagues to bigger groups and more days to play. League Play starts this week and there are teams for every level of player. (Huge apologies for being late on this.) There is the “Stay-Puft Marshmallow League” for less intense play as well as the “Charles Bronson League” for the more hardcore player. You can also go on Sunday afternoons (1:30) for general open play. The group is about fun, good music and beverages after, bullys and douchebags need not apply.
If kickball is more your speed, the World Adult Kickball Association has leagues all over LA and the OC for your red rubber ball pleasure. Sign-up is open now for league play (and demand is high!) and games start in March and April, depending on the division. Click here to find a game in your neighborhood. (Along with the postgame bar nearby.) WAKA is a national organization and raises money for charity. In 2007 they raised over $200,000 for various charities in each division. Nice job!
Go reinvent your childhood. All details after the big rubber ball.
Brings back memories, huh? (A friend of mine plays kickball on the Westside and claims it is a blast. He keeps trying to get me to join, but I just can’t bring msyelf to line up and choose sides…)
