For 47 years, the Rotary Club of Kenosha-West Softball Tournament has been a summer staple at Lincoln Park in Kenosha but the Club has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Softball Tournament due to COVID-19 concerns.
“Due to the existing pandemic, the Rotary Club of Kenosha-West announced the cancellation of the 48th annual softball tournament normally held in July. The Softball Hall of Fame induction ceremony, held during the tournament, is also cancelled. Rotary is enthusiastically anticipating a return to the ‘Kenosha Summer Classic’ in 2021,” said tournament commissioner, Dr. James Fulmer.
This was a tough call to make — the annual tournament is an incredibly important fundraiser for the Club and Kenosha — but the health and safety of our members, players, volunteers and fans is our priority. The Rotary Foundation of Kenosha West has a long-standing commitment to improve the quality of life within Kenosha and Kenosha County. As a result, the Rotary Foundation provided over $24,000 in grants last year to non-profit organizations serving Kenosha County.
The club is currently exploring other fundraising opportunities to help fund annual grants. Any questions regarding the tournament cancellation may be directed to tournament commissioners:
