Celebrate Kickball Day on April 17th!

WAKA Kickball & Social Sports is proud to present an official holiday for all things kickball... Kickball Day is on April 17th!

With the support of Daysoftheyear.com, this holiday will help spread the joy of kickball to everyone, everywhere! Kickball Day is a time to carry around your kickball, organize a pick-up game with friends and co-workers, or sign up to play in your local kickball league.

What is kickball?

Kickball is a popular playground sport that has been around since the early 1900’s. The game is typically played on a field and uses 3 bases, a pitcher's mound, and a home plate. Like baseball or softball, 2 teams compete to score runs by kicking a rubber ball and running around the bases to score. The team with the most runs at the end of the game wins. The sport is easy to play and tons of fun so it is not surprising that it has grown in popularity with both children and adults alike. Get a copy of the official rules of the game here!

Whether you play kickball in a league every week or haven't played since grade school but want to kick a red rubber ball again, Kickball Day is for you! Join us on Facebook and let us know how you will be celebrating!
