Welcome to the Travis Roy Foundation (TRF) WIFFLE Ball Tournament fundraising and registration site, where players, sponsors, donors, family, friends, and community come together in preparation for one of the TRF’s biggest fundraisers.
Cross a Vermont one-lane bridge, follow a remote dirt road and you will enter a place where hope springs eternal and love is bountiful...
August 13 - 15 2021 marks the 20th year of our tournament when friends of the Travis Roy Foundation will meet at Little Fenway in Essex, Vermont, to share a weekend of magic, developed around a backyard WIFFLE Ball tournament.
The WIFFLE Ball action is fun yet there is a much bigger story. The tournament is the culmination of a year-long effort by hundreds of TRF supporters who are focused on shortening the path to a cure for paralysis and helping spinal cord injured survivors, who are in need of adaptive equipment, improve their quality of life.
We encourage you to join our special WIFFLE Ball family by donating to the Travis Roy Foundation. 2021 is the 20th year of our tournament and it is the 25th anniversary of the founding of the Foundation overall. .Above, you will see links to more information about sponsorships, ways to make donations, and opportunities to get involved.

The Travis Roy Foundation WIFFLE Ball Tournament has become the marquee fundraiser for the Foundation. When it began 20 years ago, we had one field, seven teams, and raised $4,000. In 2019, the tournament had three fields, 32 teams, and grossed more than $750,000. Believe it or not, it isn't so much the staggering amount of money we raise that makes the tournament special, but more importantly the phenomenal volunteers, players, and sponsors that go to extraordinary lengths to create and foster a weekend long environment that can only be described as magic. It is that “magic” that brings players back year after year, and willing to go out and raise money on behalf of the Travis Roy Foundation.
The growth of the tournament has enabled the Travis Roy Foundation to double the amount of grants it provides to individuals and to research. The TRF would not be where it is today without the remarkable rise of the Travis Roy Foundation WIFFLE Ball Tournament.
