Kickball at Simkins Park

Do you remember that classic game you played during recess and gym class? Kickball is easy to learn, easy to set up, and fun to play; making it one of the most popular recreational sports in the country. It plays like a baseball game with a few key changes. With a bigger, softer and more bouncy ball than most other sports, kickball is easy and safe for everyone to pick up. The object of the game is to score more points than the opposing team. All ages and skill levels are welcome. The rules are reviewed at the start of each game to make everyone feel more comfortable. Your hosts, Meagan and Sam Landa, are super flexible to work with! Moms, dads, kids, all adults – bring it on! Every Saturday at 5 p.m. at 450 E. Simkins Road.
