Kickball, The 3 F’s - Fun, Fitness and Food?!

A few weeks ago Euan announced that he was going to play KICKBALL this summer.

Being a NETBALL player I was a little concerned that there might be another sport that was about to take over Burlington! So I did some research and felt that KICKBALL is basically a version of ROUNDERS!!

So I rocked up at Oakledge park last night with Callum and Charlie to watch Euan.

I was gobsmacked!

Every thursday at 6.30pm kickballers literally descend on Oakledge park. They all have their different coloured t shirts printed with team names and teams consist of the young and the old! There are 5 fields marked out were 10 teams play. The beauty of the event is that there is an 11th team who works the BBQ providing burgers and hot dogs for the hungry kickballers. Each team has their week of playing “chef”!

As one can imagine, the emphasis is on fun. Which is very refreshing! It was so well organised and to top the evening off, the weather was perfect and the sunset was typically stunning.

Last night was the second week of “kickball” season, they will be there all summer so please come and support those kickballers on a Thursday night at Oakledge park.

More info on the KIDS (Kickball in da Summer) league can be found on their Blog
