Local programming for adults and children is coming to the Elizabethtown Sports Park this fall.

The park, managed by The Sports Facilities Management, is launching multiple events and programs including an adult wiffle ball lea­gue, Scare-E-Town 3v3 Soccer Tourn­a­ment and a Scar-E-Town Fall Festival, according to a news release from the organization.

The events are set to take place throughout the month of October, starting with the adult wiffle ball league.

Elizabethtown Sports Park General Man­a­ger Todd Yancey expressed his excitement for the new programs.

“The programming we are developing will give us the opportunity to connect with the community in a way we haven’t before, and grow the relationship between the park and our locals,’’ he said in a news release. “We anticipate a successful fall season as we engage with the Elizabethtown community and hope local residents will enjoy the events we have planned.”

The first pitch for the fall 2019 adult wiffle ball league is set to be thrown Oct. 1 where teams receive an E’town Sports Park swag bag and everything they need for the season.

The league lasts throughout October. Teams are allowed between six to 10 players and can register on the Elizabethtown Sports Park website, the release said.

The Scare-E-Town 3v3 Soccer Tournament kicks off Oct. 26, and is available for ages ranging from 6 and under to adults. Teams must have a minimum of four players with a maximum of six per team.

After the winner of the tournament is announced, the Scare-E-Town Fall Festival immediately begins. While at the festival, visitors will have an opportunity enjoy the petting zoo, hayrides, bouncy houses, a variety of fall festival themed games and crafts, the release said.

“Involving the community in the Sports Park is something I had set out to do the moment I started,” said Amanda Anderson, programs coordinator for the park in the release. “Our team has put a lot of hard work into planning the best events for everyone and I cannot wait to start this fall with our adult wiffle ball league.”

People interested in participating are encouraged to register by the end of September, but they also can register the first night of leagues. If someone does not have a team, they can register as an individual and be assigned a team.

The cost is $45 per individual or $220 per team for the adult wiffle ball league, while registration is $180 per team for the soccer tournament.
