Join Durham's biggest and longest running adult kickball league. This league is for everyone- social people, introverts, party animals, competitive players, non-athletic players, and all other types of players. A typical game night is meeting up with your teammates to hang out before the game, playing 50 minutes of kickball, and then heading to our league bar to socialize with the rest of the league. Don't forget you are also invited to our league parties and socials where you'll meet players from all of our leagues like volleyball, bowling, dodgeball, and bar games. So lace up your sneakers and make some new friends this summer!

  • Registration is non-refundable
  • WAKA and the local league management reserve the right to remove a player from a game or from the league season at their discretion. Reasons could include but are not limited to the following: alcohol violations at the field, poor sportmanship, or intentionally causing injury to another player.  



  • Are you a captain or aspiring captain wondering about how to start a team?  First you want to register yourself, then start a "friend group".  Your friend group will become a team* after registration closes (*assuming you have enough players signed up).  If you don't have enough players signed up by the deadline, its not a big deal, we will add a small group or free agents to your team to make a full roster!

Small Groups

  • Do you have a group of friends (anywhere from 2-15 players) who would like to sign up and play on the same team together?  No problem!  What you want to do is register and start a 'friend group'.  After registration closes, your friend group will be merged with other friend group(s) or free agents to make a full team.

Free Agents

  • Plan on going solo?  Perfect.  Nearly 50 percent of the players in WAKA leagues first started as free agents or small friend groups.  That's how easy it is to meet new people and make new friends.  So don't worry - go ahead and sign up and we'll be sure to check with you to put you on a fun team that's a perfect fit for you!


  • Thinking your company would be interested in sponsoring a whole squad for a good team-building/networking activity?  No problem.  When you register you'll see an option for you to pay for any number of individuals.  Then you'll get an email with coupon codes which you can pass out to your players when they register.
