We’ll guess that one in 20 or 30 men and 0ne in 20 or 30 women who play a sport in CLUBWAKA was a groomsman or bridesmaid at a fellow player’s wedding. That’s a big deal, especially if you’ve only been with CLUBWAKA for a few years. It means you “scored a lot” of points…

Put Yourself First – Period!  Putting yourself first does not mean doing so with guilty feelings. When you put yourself first, you are likely doing yourself and the world around you much good. Think back to the last time you were on an airplane, and over the PA System, the flight attendant said something like: …

Mental health check: On a scale of one to 10, with 10 being the best, how do you feel right now (in general, not at this very moment)? If your answer isn’t the best, it’s ok. It’s also ok to not be ok. Look, we live in a challenging world. On the other side of a…

Marriage Proposal: No Diggity The marriage proposal, made to the tune of Backstreet’s “No Diggity,” took place on a Rhode Island kickball field less than three weeks ago.

There’s nothing better than those occasional, intense back-and-forth bits between two volleyball teams that lasts a good minute or more.
