Get Off the Bar Stool With Kaboom


By Kate Peterson

Cornhole, dodgeball, kickball and Ultimate Frisbee are just some of the games and leagues the Kaboom Sports and Social Club have to offer. Coming soon inner tube water polo, broomball and so much more.

Krissy Greenleaf-Robertson and her husband Mark are the evil geniuses who thought this would be a good way to get some friendly activity back into our drinking sports. While stationed in San Diego the Robertson’s, a Marine Corp couple, wanted to get involved in something other than what the military family had to offer so they joined a sports based social club. They loved the leagues and the camaraderie that came out of joining, so when they moved back to Pensacola and saw that things had been changing for the better it seemed like just the right time to bring a social club to the area. Boom, Kaboom was born.

Recently, they hosted the First Annual Time to Party Gras Pub Crawl in Downtown Pensacola. They started at Pensacola Bay Brewery, crawled to Hub Stacey’s, Seville, Play and Helen Back. They even made an impromptu stop at Hopjacks. As they put it: they came, they crawled and they conquered.

Next up for Kaboom is the Ultimate and Dodgeball Preview Party at Helen Back on Monday, March 11. They will be showing the movie “Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story,” and registering players for Ultimate and Dodgeball. It is free, and Helen Back will be offering specials on pizza and drinks.

Here are just some of the details: The games are not competitive, you will work with the owner/organizer who will get you acclimated to the team, there are free demo nights being held to get you acquainted with the games and how they work, you can come as a single or a couple (you will be placed on a team), or come as a team and there are post-game drink specials being offered at the event locations.

The Spring league line-up includes:

-Monday Cornhole, April 29-June 17 with a deadline of April 27, May 1-June 19 date.
-Saturday Ultimate at Ferry Pass Middle School from March 16-May 4 for $42.40 per person. The deadline to register is Wednesday, March 13.
