Avondale, incorporated in 1946, experienced rapid residential and commercial growth in the years since 1980. Once primarily a sparsely populated farming community with many acres of alfalfa and cotton fields, Avondale has transformed into a major bedroom suburb for Phoenix. Several major residential subdivisions and shopping centers have recently been built on former farmland, many adjacent to Interstate 10
Avondale is home to Phoenix International Raceway. It holds two NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and two Nationwide Series races annually.
The City of Avondale Parks and Recreation Department offers quality sports for both youth and adults. www.avondale.org/sports
