Concord Parks and Recreation is taking team registrations for one of the fastest growing adult sports in the country – adult kickball. The game is played following the rules for softball, except there is no bat involved, and the ball is of the big, red, rubber variety.

The coed leagues are recreational and start in March. Teams can choose to play Sunday, Tuesday or Friday evenings. The schedule calls for a seven-game season with single elimination playoffs for qualifying teams. Rosters are limited to a minimum of 12 and a maximum of 20 players per team. All games are played under the lights at Willow Pass Park.

“Our leagues are all coed and are perfect for family and company teams. Our goal is to provide a fun, relaxing, recreational opportunity for adults of all ages,” says coordinator Kathie Leavitt.

The registration deadline is Friday, Feb. 15. For more information, visit www.teamsideline.com/concord or call 925-671-3423.

I sure loved playing kickball in elementary school. If I didn’t work swing, I would sign up.

Average Joe’s to win!

Coed? Now that’s sounds interesting.

Great now the Right Wing will freak out at having to “Register” to play kickball – Obama’s reign of terror will never end – now kickball?!?

@Rob – No, it will be the left wing complaining about this sport.

The game will have winners and losers, and the winners will get prizes and the losers will have to work hard on their game in order to improve. The left wing hates that.

Yeah, let me know when they start Dodgeball.

Nice throw by the submissive.

Adult Kickball can now be found in the complete list of oxymorons.

Remove the violence from kickball and it would be a fine sport !

Adult kickball……………hmmmmm……..even as a kid I was never into it. Ohhh, but I can play very well.

Any suggestions??

Sounds like a lot of fun. Last summer at our class annual reunion picnic — Mt. Diablo Class of ’80 – we had a game of kickball and we had so much fun.

Have not asked for “slow bouncies” for years….

14 Connie Dobbs February 5, 2013 at 7:02 AM

Sounds like fun.

In today’s feminized society, everyone gets a trophy!
We are all winners.

16 Pegasus February 5, 2013 at 8:44 AM

I want my trophy up front. Don’t want to think of myself as a loser.

Hurt feelings is all part of the game & taunting is an art form!
I wear a size 14 shoe & will play for the highest bidder. Minimum requirements: 1 year contract, my own personal cheerleader, 1 ice chest full of beer (per game). Now let’s talk money.

18 Mac February 5, 2013 at 10:08 AM

@ Jellyfinger… size 14 shoe is good for kicking the ball, but it may work against you running the bases :-)

19 LorieStories February 5, 2013 at 10:38 AM

How fun!

20 Killjoy February 5, 2013 at 9:05 PM

D’oh! Dodgeball is on TV right now. LOL
