Five Reasons Fort Lauderdale's Young Professionals Play WAKA Kickball

FastForward is a column documenting the nighttime scene in Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach County. It's a weeknight stop at your neighborhood dive; it's a blurry, bass-filled Friday night in the club; it's that one moment in a conversation you hope you'll remember the next morning.

No one ever said growing up was easy. Luckily, since the rampant rise of WAKA Kickball, the latest sensation to hit the scene for 20- to 30-somethings in Fort Lauderdale, it seems you don't ever really have to.

If you're unfamiliar, here's the gist of it: WAKA stands for "World Adult Kickball Association," and its goal, according to the official website, is "to provide and promote the joy of kickball to those young at heart." Sounds simple enough.
