With 30+ sports offered in the 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 100+ counties represented in the most recent 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.
