Stonewall Sports Tournament & Summit

7th Annual Stonewall Sports Tournament & Summit is heading to Cleveland!

Stonewall Sports Tournament, a tournament that goes beyond the field of sport to promote positive change, will make its way to Northeast Ohio on July 10-12, 2020. Every summer the organization joins together for a weekend of sport competition, social events and conversation around key issues facing the community.

The weekend will feature 1,500 athletes from over 19 cities across the country to participate in a diversity summit, kickball, dodgeball, volleyball, bocce, billiards, tennis and bowling tournaments. All LGBTQ+ and ally athletes are welcomed to attend along with current Stonewall Sports members in order to celebrate Stonewall Pride.

"The Stonewall Sports Cleveland family is beyond honored to host the National Tournament and are excited to showcase all that our great city has to offer to those coming in from across the nation," said Patty Hace, Stonewall Sports Cleveland Board Chair. "Cleveland was chosen to host for a variety of reasons, but one that we are most proud of is the true sense of community that our local organization fosters. We want to extend a special thank you to Taylor Henschel, Jim Forrest and Monica Gustin [GCSC], who helped head the charge in bringing the tournament to Cleveland."

This tournament will provide a platform to discuss and celebrate the LGBTQ+ community as well as deliver an estimated $1,040,168 in economic impact to Northeast Ohio.

Stonewall Sports is an LGBTQ+ & Ally community-based, non-profit sports organization founded in 2010 that strives to raise funds for local non-profit organizations. The league values each players for who they are and what they bring to the league's community.
