Thanks to a multitude of fully equipped facilities and playing fields, Overland Park has become a destination for a wide variety of sporting events. The city hosts everything from recreational leagues to regional and national tournaments, making Overland Park an integral part of Kansas City’s passionate, energetic sports community.
Name a sport, and there’s a good chance that Overland Park has a facility for it. The City of Overland Park, for example, offers a whopping seven baseball and softball fields in parks throughout the city. Factor in Blue Valley Recreation Complex’s 24 irrigated baseball/softball fields (among others) and odds are good that, on any given night during the baseball/softball season, a game is happening somewhere in Overland Park.
Six Overland Park schools offer lacrosse fields and the city is home to the Blue Valley Youth Lacrosse league, part of the larger Kansas City Youth Lacrosse League. Prefer racquetball or know someone who plays? The Athletic Club of Overland Park is widely considered among the best in the country for both racquetball and handball and features 15 racquetball courts. That’s a lot of rallies!
And the list continues. From indoor or outdoor sand volleyball courts and disc golf courts to batting cages and skate parks, Overland Park is the place to go to practice, train, compete or spectate. Plus, most facilities are minutes away from restaurants, entertainment, services and lodging, putting you within convenient range of whatever you need.
