Kickin’ It!



The latest dish from ComePlay Detroit sports.

By Justin Jacobs

ComePlayDetroit kicks off our summer leagues with record-setting participation. More than 1,000 unique players are involved in basketball, softball, volleyball, tennis, softball, flag football, and, our most popular sport, kickball!

With 28 teams and more than 400 players, we had a great start to the season. In partnership with CommunityNEXT, a department of the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit, we hosted a Kickball Kick-Off party at Como’s in Ferndale on Wednesday, May 16, and had a great time with good food, drinks and live music.

Some of the fun team names include: Matzah Balls, Kickin It Old Shul and Kick Shmear & Tuchas among others. Join us every Monday and Wednesday night at Como’s. Tell them you are with ComePlayDetroit and get two pitchers of beer and an extra-large pizza for only $28. Not to mention you get to hang out with all the great ComePlayDetroit kickballers!

CPD continues to build its Downtown Detroit presence by hosting leagues on Belle Isle. There is a great sense of energy there with the beautiful views of the Detroit and Windsor skylines as well as the boats that cruise by on the Detroit River.

This year, we are excited to have doubled our participation with eight co-ed softball teams, including teams from Quicken Loans, Bedrock Management, University of Detroit Grad Students, Deloitte and more. The success of the Downtown leagues are most important to us as we try to help make Detroit a vibrant place for young adults to live, work and play.

We are still accepting registration for some of our June leagues, including co-ed tennis, co-ed flag football and co-ed sand volleyball. Register at
