PLACERVILLE, CALIFORNIA
99 CENTS

It’s up and down at yo-yo championships

SACRAMENTO — For a fourth consecutive year, hundreds of yo-yo players from all over the world will descend onto the Downtown Plaza with one thing in mind — competition.

On Saturday, March 2 at 9 a.m., the California State Yo-Yo Championships is taking place. Old school tricks like rock the baby and walk the dog take on a new life as performers push the boundaries of yo-yo technology to dazzle the audience.

More than $3,000 in cash prizes are available and $1,000 going to the head division champion.

Competitors will perform a two-minute freestyle filled with tricks that defy gravity and boggle the mind.

Watch California’s best yo-yo competitors contend for the coveted placement in the regional multi-state contest for a chance to compete at nationals.

This all day event is a sure-fire win for the entire family. With hundreds of pro’s around, finding someone to teach you the basics of the world’s second oldest toy will be a cinch.

Before the end of the day, new yo-yo players may find themselves splitting the atom or trying their luck with double or nothing.

One thing is clear; at the California State Yo-Yo Championship, there will be players, winners, students and fun according to organizers.

State champions have gone on to compete at the national and world level. California is considered to be the focal point of the yo-yo world, and many of the worlds the best players call California home.

Five champion divisions and a beginners ladder division allow players of all skill levels to compete.

Registration per division is only $5.

Admission to the championship is free.

The contest will take place at the Sacramento Downtown Plaza Shopping Center, 547 L St.
