What is Kickball?

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. This classic game is played like a game of baseball with a few important changes. With a larger, gentler, and bouncier ball than most other sports, Kickball is easy and safe for anyone to pick up. The object of the game, like baseball, is to score more runs than the opposing team.  For more detailed rules and how to play check-out the official rule page.
