Reminiscent of recess showdowns, Thursday night kickball launches at Robb Field in Ocean Beach on July 14. Teams of 10 will face off in hour-long matchups to see who can boot that red rubber ball out of the park. After a competitive game of kickball, head over to the sponsored bar (to be announced) to play in your scheduled flip cup match. Scores for both kickball and flip cup will be recorded and used to crown the league champion at the end of eight weeks! Players can sign up individually, in small groups or as a full team. Each season includes six weeks of play and two weeks of playoffs for top competitors.
