For the first time since 2006, the North Carolina Wiffle Ball Tournament will return to its original location in Kenly on July 17 and 18.

The tournament began there in 1982 as the Kenly Wiffle Ball Tournament, and this is the 40th consecutive year a tournament has been held.

It is the second oldest Wiffle Ball tournament in the world, trailing only the World Wiffle Ball Championship of Midlothian, Ill., which began in Mishawaka, Ind., in 1980.

Kenly’s KAPARC facility will host the 4-on-4, double-elimination slow-pitch event, and the entry fee will again be $80 for five-man rosters. Bats, balls and umpires will be provided, with trophies for first place, runner up, MVP and an All-Tournament team.

The tournament became the State Tournament in 1989 and was in Kenly from 1982-2006. It then moved to Smithfield from 2007-2019 before being held at Miffly Field in Spiveys Corner last year.

For more information on the tourney, or to register a team, visit ncwiffleball.weebly.com, or call or text tournament director Jeff Davis at 919-915-2280.

Come out and enjoy Yoga classes at the Greenville Aquatics & Fitness Center.

Classes are free for GAFC members. Non-member fees are $35 for residents and $52 for non-residents. Call 252-329-4041 for more information.
