Our first-ever Pick Your Battle tournament is coming your way, and it’s serving up two of the fastest-growing sports in America: pickleball and cornhole. This event has all of the ingredients for a good time, while helping to strengthen and support our community.

Proceeds benefit the YMCA of Greater Kansas City. Funds raised will help us sustain the vital programs and services our community needs. Your support can help provide food for those who are hungry, child care for parents who work, a safe space for kids after school, outreach to seniors who are feeling isolated, life-saving water safety and swim lessons to eliminate drowning, a welcoming place for newcomers, and so much more.

Pre-registration is required. Deadline to register is March 1. Register at the link below or text PickYourBattle to 76278. 

Registration Fees:
$100 - Pickleball Team
$60 - Cornhole Team
