Kickball Love: Kasey & Paul

Kasey & Paul: WAKA Kickball LoveKasey and Paul from WAKA’s CA Dogtown league met in 2009 at World Kickball Championship Weekend in Las Vegas.

We’ll let Paul tell the story:  "Kasey was part of a veteran squad that had several seasons of kickball under its belt; Paul was a member of a rookie squad from a new league nearby, playing its 12th-14th games of kickball ever at the tournament. The two lived two miles apart in California but had never met until they ran into each other on a post-game flip-cup table in Vegas. Neither of their teams won any national championships that weekend, but they reconvened back in Venice, and on January 26th, 2012, they celebrated their three year anniversary. And returned to Vegas this past fall to help both their teams go 3-0 in pool play. Love bringeth experience..."

The picture here is from a trip the two of them took to Macchu Pichu, Peru last spring.

Thanks for sharing your story, Paul!

Happy Valentine's Day from all of us at WAKA!

Pictured on the right is Rachel from one of our Los Angeles leagues and her boyfriend, Jeff. They met playing WAKA Kickball in March 2011. "It was the first game of my very first season playing (Jeff had already played a couple seasons prior) and he was a member of the opposing team," explains Rachel. "Flirty banter ensued during and after the game, and we've been together ever since."
 
"I would say that joining WAKA has been one of the best decisions I've ever made," says Rachel. "Not only did I meet a great guy, but I've met some really awesome people and have made great friends!"
