Elementary school is a distant memory, but one thing we’ll never forget? The joys of recess! Hanging out on the playground, making new friends, letting our pent-up energy and frustration from the day out – recess was one of the only times we truly felt like ourselves. While adults unfortunately don’t get this playtime anymore, you can still feel like a kid again by joining the LoneStar Sports and Social Club Kickball League at Vitruvian Park, beginning June 5.
The rules are simple: it’s just like baseball, except with a ball you kick (hence, the name). Players set up on a diamond-shaped field, where one person kicks the ball to the player on home base, who will then kick it as far as he or she can. After that, the kicker will run to first, second, third and home base to score a point, while other players will try to get him out.
The outdoor games pit 10 players against each other at a time, and teams must have a minimum of 12 players. Four players per team on the field must be female, and only two males can kick in a row. All participants must be 21-years-old or older. Each game will last approximately 45-minutes or 7 innings. A full list of rules can be found here.
As part of the LoneStar SSC, you will get a matching color T-shirt and play seven games with your team. Throughout the season, you will enjoy costume contests, drinking games and plenty of other fun activities to keep you entertained. After kicking, running, laughing and having fun, everyone is invited to a weekly happy hour at the Addison Ice House.
LoneStar Sports and Social Club is a co-ed sports and social club, with opportunities available year-round to get out in town, get active and meet people. Kickball will run every Wednesday from 6:30-10 p.m. from June 5-July 24. Registration is $69.95 if you are signing up as an individual, and $59.75 per player if you are signing up as part of a team.
Kick-off your summer with a friendly game of kickball. It’s the best way to meet people, exercise and have fun this season!
