In the spirit of offering a lifestyle alternative to the otherwise rudimentary activities that dominate and sometimes dull our urbanite senses — RECESS is an ongoing series of sports and games that redefines our shared philosophy of play by fusing healthy sportsmanship, unbridled creativity and the people responsible for that creativity.
This great concept is being launched this Saturday at NYC's historic Governor's Island with the Lawn Series (sponsored by Tretorn and Puma), a summer-long, 3-event faceoff in the classic games of Badminton (June 20), Table Tennis (August 22), and Bocce Ball (September 26). Teams from creative companies around NYC will battle to the end (of the day, that is). Even if you're not competing, come out and support, polish up your own game or grab a bite from the Le Gamin or Van Leeuwen Ice Cream Trucks. Just a quick free ferry ride from the south tip of Manhattan!
