Hi Estelle, can you tell us a bit about yourself and your background?
Because we love planning parties… CLUBWAKA in New Orleans hosted a Bar Olympics extravaganza last weekend featuring more than a dozen different bar games and team competitions.
The day started early and players were shy and a bit cautious in the first games - each round was a surprise and no-one knew what was coming. After a few rounds of giant beer pong, (a crowd favorite throughout the day), the party and competition ramped up and teams battled it out for the gold medals.
Last weekend, we hosted our first vacation of the year at the breathtaking Heavenly Mountain in Lake Tahoe, with more than 200 of our CLUBWAKA friends.
The CLUBWAKA Tahoe Ski Trip is a unique blend of snow sports by day, and pub crawls, casino games, and dance parties by night. This year, Tahoe has an epic amount of snow and we had an absolute blast while skiing, boarding, and trying to play kickball in all the fresh powder... It took a full three hours and lots of CLUBWAKA helpers to carve out our snow kickball field!
From an apres ski party at 8,000 feet to inflatable pool toy sled races and a onesie pub-crawl through Tahoe’s legendary casinos, this trip proved an unforgettable experience. Here’s what happened…
We’re moving full force into a new season of fun with a line up of new CLUBWAKA activities and events. If you are looking for some positivity and a new adventure, here’s a bunch of cool stuff happening soon that we’re looking forward to:

Here’s a look at our favorite social sports for every age, ability, and interest and why you should get out and play something new!
As we’re soaking in a new year of opportunities, surprise, and fun, we wanted to take a moment to look back at some of the best shots taken by many of CLUBWAKA’s most talented photographers over the past year.

Joining a bowling league, a kickball team, or a playing in a corn hole tournament may not seem super romantic, but we’ve talked with a lot of happy CLUBWAKA couples who've got us convinced that fun and romance go hand in hand, and adding some playfulness to your relationship can bring you closer with your partner, and help you keep things fresh.
Whether you are moving side-by-side as teammates, encouraging each other, or sharing wins and losses, there are many positive benefits to playing social sports as a couple - especially when it comes to strengthening your relationship.
If you want to get in the seasonal mood, these CLUBWAKA photos should do the trick!
