With 30+ sports offered in the 2019 Bluegrass State Games, from the traditional (track & field, baseball, soccer) to the emerging (pickleball, eSports, bike polo), there is something for everyone to get involved and compete for a Gold, Silver, or Bronze medal.
With 15,000+ participants annually, the Bluegrass State Games has grown from a humble beginning in 1985 to become the state’s largest amateur sporting event. In addition to the large number of participants, the State Games truly are a statewide competition, with 73 counties represented in the 2018 Games.
Individuals with any type of disability may compete in any of the Bluegrass State Games events. Individuals with disabilities will compete with non-disabled participants when ability levels are comparable. If the athlete feels that his/her ability level is not comparable with non-disabled participants, he/she will compete against other participants with similar disabilities, provided enough entries are received to hold competitions.
