This Week 2016-Feb-16 Slip & Slide Kickball

Tonight we will setup a field for a Slip & Slide version of kickball. The kickball field is set up like a regular field, with four bases and a pitcher, but the bases are kiddie pools, and there’s a homemade 10m black plastic Slip & Slide between each base.


Organised by: Chris G / Darren

Don’t wear uniform. Come along with clothes that can get wet and a bit dirty.
