Interim Community Services Director Jesus Coronado said, “The SPARD staff has done a great job putting us in a position to be able to host all these tournaments in our city, and we are excited about it. Not only do these tournaments bring in visitors and generate great revenue for our city but it also puts the spotlight on Stephenville and its community as a whole.”
