About Us

bob hansonI hope you find our website information useful and our concept intriguing. We have compiled a listing of sporting events, attractions, tournaments and facility information which we hope you will find helpful and beneficial. The Sports Commission welcomes your ideas, comments and opinions concerning sports in our community because we need your input and suggestions in organizing the local sports scene. The time has come for the greater Wichita area sports community to unite.

For too long, sports teams and interested individuals in our community have tried to operate leagues, tournaments, and sporting events with fund raising programs such as bake sales and car washes. These are excellent fundraising ideas for grass roots organizations, but taxing and burdensome for the few volunteers who support and operate many of the Wichita area sports clubs. Insert the Greater Wichita Area Sports Commission, a private not for profit organization formed in August of 1997. The Sports Commission was developed to improve the quality of life and the economy of Wichita through sports, as well as provide support to existing events and organizations in on our community.

My staff and I are committed to organizing the area sports scene and bring area, regional and national sporting events to the Greater Wichita Area. It is our goal to showcase our community by making the Wichita area a Midwestern hub for sporting events and activities. We invite you to join the Sports Commission and help us put an umbrella over the Wichita sports community. Our offices are located at 515 South Main Street in Suite 115 inside the brand new Waterwalk Building. If you have a tournament or sporting event that you need help with or want to publicize, the Sports Commission wants to help. Please call us at (316) 265-6236 or toll free at (800) 526-9424.
