WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Greater Wichita YMCA CEO Ronn McMahon announced Friday that youth sports in Andover would return this weekend, just over one week after the Andover YMCA was hit by a tornado. Games will be played at Andover High School while field conditions at the Andover Y and timing of the reopening of the Farha Sports Center is evaluated.

The YMCA is working on finding alternative locations for summer camp programs, which are scheduled to begin later this month. McMahon said parents will be contacted by the end of next week with potential options, and that there will be no charges.

The facility was significantly damaged, and while it may take a while, we will rebuild and come back stronger than ever to serve the Andover community,” McMahon’s statement read.
