Sports and recreation has major economic impact on Valley

Most people enjoy the benefits of sports and recreation. And, as you are taking the interest to read this, I’ll assume that includes you. Sports and rec activities are fun, healthy, energizing, and from a spectator’s standpoint, interesting and entertaining. They can also be extremely beneficial economically ‘downstream’ to a wide segment of the business community.

An important function of the Wenatchee Valley Sports Council involves the tracking of sports tourism spending in the Valley — specifically, estimates on monies spent by visitors coming here for sports related events and tournaments. This tracking is an extension of our partnership with the Wenatchee Valley Chamber of Commerce, which assumed the responsibility of destination marketing for the Wenatchee Valley earlier this year.
