Of all the World Adult Kickball Association's rules, only one is rigidly enforced: All players are required to go to the bar after each game. The Tavern Company on Lee Road is the watering hole of choice. "When I first heard about it, I thought, 'How hard can kickball be?'" says player Kelly Maloney. "'And everyone goes to a bar afterward? I am all over this.'"
Every Wednesday, four teams of at least 11 players each play two five-inning games. The L.A.-based league boasts 200 chapters across the country. The teams with the best records qualify for the Leaders Cup World Championship, which takes place in San Diego in November.
