Pick Your Battle ICT attracts nearly 70 registered teams
The Greater Wichita YMCA hosted its first-ever Pick Your Battle ICT tournament on July 10 at Farha Sports Center-South, raising nearly $54,000 for the Y’s Strong Community Campaign. The event served up two of the fastest-growing sports in America – pickleball and cornhole. And while it was a friendly competition, players on the women’s, men’s and co-ed teams dinked, lobbed, tossed and scored with accuracy and precision with the hopes of leaving with a gold, silver or bronze medal.
With nearly 70 registered teams, Pick Your Battle was bustling with activity all day long. Spectators and players alike were also treated to food trucks and access to the South Y’s Water Park. All were made possible by the generous support of SJCF Architecture and Kruse Corporation.
It usually only takes one game for most people to get hooked on pickleball and cornhole, and the success of Pick Your Battle only shows how much the two sports have grown in popularity at the Y. Just recently, cornhole leagues were formed at Farha Sports Center-South, and many of our branches now offer pickleball open play hours throughout the week.
It’s always great when the Y family gets together to have fun, be active and support the community. Together we are making it possible for everyone, regardless of ability to pay, to have access to the Y's world-class recreational opportunities, sports leagues, youth development programs and the region’s most spectacular fitness facilities and water parks. We are making it possible for everyone to belong at the Y!
