2022 State Games of America Coming to Iowa

April 21, 2022

The 2022 State Games of America recently wrapped up in Iowa. The State Games of America are the culmination of the 30 State Games competitions conducted across the country. The previous medal winners (gold, silver and bronze) from each State Games competition are eligible to play in the State Games of America.


The Olympic-style competition features 48 different types of competition, including adult and youth tennis. This event is held every other year, but this was the first time since 2019. This year marks the first time Iowa has been selected as the host site of the games. As the host state, this means that Iowans didn't need to qualify through the Iowa State Games to participate in the State Games of America. Participants from other states were able to qualify for the State Games through their state's own local games, listed below.
