The Skokie Park District (just north of Chicago) is the home of the legendary World Wiffle®Ball Championship, a tournament born in Mishawaka, Indiana in 1980.

The 37th annual open wiffleball tournament, the world's largest and oldest, is set for July 9-10, 2016. Four- to five-player teams, ages 10+, will all play a four-game schedule on Saturday, followed by a single elimination tournament for top qualifiers on Sunday. The tournament will be played rain or shine.
Over the years, the event — which grew up in the shadow of Notre Dame's famed golden dome — has been featured on ESPN's SportsCenter, in Men's Health, in USA Today, in the book "101 Baseball Places to See Before You Strike Out" (ranked #27), and on Fox, CBS, ABC and NBC-TV. The tournament also has featured regional stops in Los Angeles; Baltimore; Eugene, Oregon; and Barcelona, Spain.
