Changing of the seasons

With the change of seasons from summer to fall, obviously there comes a major change in sports events as well. The bats and balls get put away, replaced by soccer balls, football pads, hockey sticks, and before you know it, skis.

It’s been a busy summer in the Wenatchee Valley. From April thruogh July, the Sports Council has tracked a total of 44 organized tournaments and events here. That doesn’t include teams involved in league play, such as the Wenatchee AppleSox and Wenatchee Valley Rams. As you would expect, baseball and softball led all sports with 23 tournaments, but running, biking, swimming, fishing, tennis and special events such as the Warrior Dash and last week’s United Way Color Rush kept facilities, hotels, restaurants and retail stores hopping. Over $4 million in sports tourism spending, leading to more than 13,500 hotel room nights, has been estimated for the four-month period, by far the most robust months of the year.
