Nearly 150 players on 11 teams participated in the third annual Sand Kickball Tournament on September 18 at 31st Street at the Oceanfront. This event was hosted by Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce and Hampton Roads Sports Commission.
This unique high energy, double elimination sand kickball tournament was held in conjunction with the Chamber’s annual Beach Bash. The participating teams included non-profit organizations, small, mid-size and large corporations.
The games began at 1pm and concluded around 5p.m. with an awards presentation on Neptune Park’s main stage. Many of the teams stayed and enjoyed the live band, great food and adult beverages at Beach Bash.
Electronic Systems, Inc. took home the first place “Grand Sand Kickers” trophy. Second place went to Brown & Brown Insurance, and Collier’s International team finished third.
“ESI enjoys participating in all Chamber events, but the Kickball Tournament has become our favorite,” said Leslie Rivera, Marketing Communications Specialist at Electronic Systems, Inc. who particpated in the games. “After the hype around the office surrounding last year’s tournament, we ended up having to enter two teams this year to include all those that wanted to participate. We will proudly display this year’s first place trophy in the office, and are already looking forward to next year’s tournament.”
