Come out to our annual RECESS showdown this Saturday June 23rd at Colonel's Row on Governors Island featuring some of the baddest shuttle cockers in New York City! Bring your picnic blankets, ride over to the island on your bikes and come ready to support your favorite teams. You can even spike some birdies on a few of the open courts while jamming to the sounds of our musical guest selectors Woody Wood Jr & Bing Ji Ling!
Here's the ferry SCHEDULE for both Manhattan & Brooklyn, unfortunately no animals allowed. Once you get off the ferry, we're a super short 5 minute walk from the dock on a field called Colonel's Row, there'll be signs to guide you to RECESS so no need to panic :)
We're super excited to have some great vendors and sponsors this year like evian to keep all teams hydrated throughout the day & Playdate Bike Club who will be offering free test rides for players and attendees in between their games, as well as RECESS regulars Je & Jo ice cream with their tricycle and Snow & Tell with their Taiwanese shaved ice delicacies. Panade will also be there in case you get hungry with their assortment of sweet & savory puffs!Here's a link to our newly revamped RECESS site, complete with a webshop and a monthly mixtape club called INTERMISSION by guest musical selectors for your listening pleasure, check it out often and don't forget to like us on facebook!
May the best team win!
