Last month, WAKA players shared stories of what WAKA Kickball has brought to their life. Here are some of our favorites:

"It's hard to imagine my life without kickball. I have traveled all around the US and playing kickball with WAKA has introduced me to great friends in every new city, enabling me to establish an instant network anywhere I go. WAKA is truly a nationwide social club, with a quirky common thread that unites kickballers from every corner of the country. I met my husband-to-be through playing on rival kickball teams, and have many lifelong friends with whom bonds have been built through both the sport and social aspects of WAKA." - Kristen D.

Noelle & Alex

"Four years ago, I joined the Furious Boozers kickball team (NY Liberty division) with a friend. One night after a game, I played an intense game of one-on-one flip cup with Alex, a guy on the team. The prize for him was my phone number. The prize for me was - well, his phone number. I hate to admit it, but I think he won. Or maybe I let him win. Either way, we ended up dating, moving in together, and this winter, Alex proposed! If not for WAKA, I would have missed out on meeting some great friends and my future husband! "- Noelle C.

Happy Birthday, Eric!
