Kickball is back

Kickball lovers can get their laces tight in anticipation of summer fun.

The 2011 Cayman Islands Humane Society Kickball Fundraiser tournament has a new date. Originally planned for 29 January, the new scheduled day is Saturday 30 July at the Field of Dreams baseball facility.

Cayman Sports Authority, a division of Kings Sports Centre, is the new organizing group for the event.

This year would mark the third occasion of the competition.

Started by former Cayman resident Patrick Bourque, the event usually raises around CI$10,000 for the Cayman Islands Humane Society and the Sunset Women’s Football Club.

The tournament, which normally happens over the course of a day, features a hybrid sport which has been a childhood favourite for many Cayman residents.

Also known as soccer-baseball, kickball features the same rules as in baseball with the big difference being one must kick a large rubber ball rather than hit a baseball with a bat.
