About Us

What started in 1998 as the World Adult Kickball Association, has exploded across the nation as CLUBWAKA, the country’s premier social club providing adult sports leagues, social activities, and events.

In everything we do, we believe in having fun. Life should be fun, and people should be happy. Our goal is to create 100 million smiles and our mission is to deliver the best fun and life-changing happiness. We do this by operating fantastic league, event, and party experiences.

Our Story

The CLUBWAKA story goes a little something like this... In 1998, a group of friends, Johnny LeHane, David Lowry, and Jimmy Walicek, gathered in a bar in Washington, DC. As young professionals, they were missing the social clubs and easy ways of meeting people that they had experienced in college. So they did the most logical thing - they got their friends together for a kickball game. What resulted was the World Adult Kickball Association (WAKA) an organization running the most fun and social co-ed adult kickball leagues across America.

After years of success with WAKA, Jimmy, Johnny, and David wanted to share the WAKA experience with more people. They wanted fans of other sports and even those who aren’t athletically inclined to be able to join in on the WAKA fun, so in 2016 they created CLUBWAKA: the country’s premier social sports and events company.

Today, CLUBWAKA offers a variety of sports leagues in some 50 cities and organizes events all around the country. To ensure we stay close to the mission and constantly create fun and memorable experiences, CLUBWAKA’s lived by four core values that guide everything we do.
