Kansas YMCAs have begun a brand new State-Wide Pickleball Tournament

 Every second weekend of the month, YMCAs across Kansas will host a pickleball tournament. 

This is the first of its kind in all of Kansas! Garden City starts this momentous event off for all of Kansas YMCAs due to the idea springing from our own Garden City Family YMCA CEO, Chad Knight.

On top of that, the first 50 registrants at each location will recieve a FREE signed book by all three authors, "The Complete Book of Pickleball: The Ultimate Training Guide for Passionate Players of All Levels" by Kurt, Mike, and Brett Brungardt. All three men grew up in Garden City, Kansas; the beginning host of the Pickleball Tournaments. The authors will personally attend the state tournmanet in December!

Whether you're a beginner, intermediate, or on a competitive level, everyone of varying skills is welcome to attend these tournaments.

The tournament dates and locations are listed below:

February - 10 & 11 Garden City

March - 9 & 10 : Garden City

April - 13 & 14 : Pittsburg

May - TBA : Wichita

June - 8 & 9 : Junction City

July : None

August - 10 & 11 : Salina

September - 14 & 15 : Camp Wood

October - 12 & 13 : Dodge City

November - 9 & 10 : Topeka

State Championship!

December - 13, 14, & 15 : Wichita YMCA Pickleball Center

You do NOT have to be a native to that city to register. Simply pick the tournament that works best for you and your schedule. After that, enter to try your hand at the state-level.

Winners at each location get invited to attend the State YMCA Pickleball Tournament at the end of the year to be hosted by the Wichita YMCA inside their brand new Pickleball Center! This will occur on December 13th - 15th
