Known as the Sunniest City on Earth, Yuma shines the brightest at 91 percent of daylight hours per year. We are also the driest and least humid climate – your hair will thank you later. Yuma only receives an annual rainfall of three inches*, so there is no need for rain boots or a raincoat.
As the Sunniest City on Earth, it makes sense that you’d want to hold your sports tournament or sports event in Yuma! Yuma’s year-round warm climate makes it an ideal location for outdoor sports, even when it’s snowy and cold “back home,” wherever your team or sporting participants are coming from. Athletic venues in Yuma include the Pacific Avenue Athletic Complex which can host softball teams with its 6 fields and seating for over 3,000 spectators, the PAAC is located near walking paths and many restaurants and hotels. The Ray Kroc Sports Complex is a multi-use recreation center for baseball, softball, soccer and tennis. The Ray Kroc Sports Complex seats over 5,000 spectators with its 3 baseball fields, 2 practice fields and more!
Golf deserves its own write-up, with nearly a dozen neatly manicured courses around the Yuma area, including 18-hole, 9-hole, and Par 3 designs. The desert’s beauty is on display with cacti, succulents, and desert plants around the greens, and seeing a desert sunset from the course is special. No matter the budget, Yuma has a tee-time for groups of all sizes.
