Rhode Island's Premier WIFFLE® Ball League
Celebrating the Everyday Contributions of the Ocean State's Best
The Rhode Island WIFFLE® Ball League, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established in 1996, provides a safe environment for boys and girls of all ages, encouraging all to go outside and play, while also supporting local businesses and charities throughout the great state of Rhode Island.
Since the first summer, RIWBL has provided regular season, playoffs, and All-Star Tournament charity events. Over twenty years after its founding, the league has provided hundreds of participants an opportunity to play organized WIFFLE® Ball throughout the United States and in Europe.
At the annual All-Star Charity Tournament, our grand old game is transformed into a conduit for good, uniting America’s great national pastime along with families and friends for a weekend of fun and athletic spirit.
Since the event’s inception, RIWBL has raised money for Hasbro Children’s Hospital, Amos House, the Rhode Island Community Food Bank, Children’s Miracle Network, Alzheimer’s Association, Prostate Cancer Foundation, and Wounded Warrior Project.
