Wifflefest is an Ashland tradition. It is simple backyard baseball, except with 4 or 5 players instead of nine and we use Wiffle balls and not baseballs. The four main players are: pitcher, catcher, and two outfielders. Both rookie and seasoned veteran teams gather from all around to compete on fields that have been meticulously built to 1/3 to 1/4 the scale of actual major league baseball fields.

Where is Wifflefest?
The official home of Wifflefest is at Southview Grace Brethren Church in Ashland, Ohio (directions). It is headed up by the Youth Group and the Missions Commission. We are located right across the street from Community Stadium.
Who can play?
Unfortunately, we’ve had to make some adjustments this year. This year, we have three divisions: high school, adult (competitive) and adult/family leisure play. We are looking forward to returning to our full tournament next year.
How much does it cost?
Southview’s Wifflefest was designed to be a low-cost community event. All costs go directly to operating the tournament (we don’t make a profit). Cost per team is $20. Extra bats can be purchased for $5.00 each. Southview does its best to accommodate as many teams as possible; however, space is limited this year and teams are placed in the tournament according to when we receive the registration. All registration fees must be paid within 24 hours to save your spot.
How do I register?
Mail or drop off your team registration to Southview Grace Brethren Church (810 Katherine Avenue, Ashland, Ohio 44805). Office hours are 9 am – 4 pm Monday through Thursday. Telephone: 419.289.1763
