WAKA Kickball Listed on 2011 Inc. 5000 as one of the Fastest Growing Private U.S. Companies for Second Year in a Row
Washington D.C., Dec. 19, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The World Adult Kickball Association (WAKA Kickball), has been ranked by Inc. magazine on its annual Inc. 5000 list for the second year in a row. The Inc. 5000 is an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy--America’s independent-minded entrepreneurs.
WAKA Kickball is the world’s premier and largest co-ed kickball organization with thousands of teams nationwide as well as divisions overseas. Since 1998, the company has legitimized the sport by establishing the official rules of kickball and serves as the governing body of kickball. Headquartered in the Washington D.C. area, WAKA Kickball is one of Inc. Magazine’s fastest growing private companies in America, and is recognized widely in the press as the nation’s premier kickball organization.
"It is a distinct honor to be recognized on this list. Everyone on the WAKA Kickball team works hard to drive this company forward and provide players with the best kickball experience," said Johnny LeHane, WAKA Kickball co-founder and director of franchising. "This external validation of those efforts is a great feeling."
In addition to being listed on the Inc. 5000 this year, WAKA Kickball also launched its franchise program. WAKA Kickball is looking to share its dozen-year success with hundreds of others by offering one of the most exciting, low price, high "fun" franchises in the marketplace. WAKA Kickball’s franchise owners will be a part of a new lifestyle business as they enjoy leaving their home office to get to the local kickball field rather than working in a cubicle.

The Inc. 5000 recognition and early success of its franchising program comes on the heels of WAKA Kickball’s annual World Kickball Championship® weekend. The World Kickball Championship Founders Cup brings together 64 teams from across the country to determine the world's best kickball team. In addition to the competitive tournament, a social event - The Kickball Games - offers teams the opportunity to play one another for fun and to win various superlative categories such as "Life of the Party" and "Best Costume." The Founders Cup and The Kickball Games are held annually in Las Vegas during Columbus Day Weekend.
