The kickball team ‘Boston Social Club’ played their very first game together at WAKApalooza Weekend 2014. The players were from different WAKA leagues around Boston, and joined up to travel to Las Vegas for the WAKApalooza Fun Games.
The group was a mix of veteran and new kickball players - some with more than ten years of experience, and others with just a few seasons under their belts. They didn’t have a team name, but that really didn’t matter. They were going to Las Vegas with 3,000 other kickball players for four days of parties and tournaments.
According to our kickball experts, WAKA players have 42% more fun in the summer than anyone else. To make sure you and your teammates get the most out of the summer, don’t miss these upcoming WAKA kickball leagues and events:
You can tell a lot about someone’s personality by the way they kick a ball. Here are 6 of the archetypal kicking styles that we see at WAKA Kickball games– which one are you most like?
1. Power leg: You're confident and self assured and kick the first ball thrown at you as hard as you can. It doesn't matter what the pitch looks like, you believe in yourself and can do what it takes to get the ball out of the infield.

WAKApalooza Weekend is coming and its always a festival of color, kickball, and creative WAKA party people! Every year, WAKA players raise the bar on costumes, party props, and team accessories. In 2014, there was a HUGE homemade pirate ship at the field, a full circus, and a rowdy marathon game of Slip and Flip.
Whether you plan to get yourself to Las Vegas for the whole weekend or to follow the action from home with hashtag #WAKAVegas - here's a primer of what you can expect to see:
