Metro Parks Hosting Spring Kickoff Softball Tournament
Tuesday March 15, 2011
Metro Parks is encouraging local softball players to shake off the winter rust and enter teams in the first-ever Spring Kickoff Softball Tournament, April 8-10 at Camp Taylor, Hays Kennedy and Seneca Parks.
Men’s and co-ed tournaments will follow an Amateur Softball Association-sanctioned,16-team pool play format, with the top two teams from each pool advancing to the eight-team single elimination portion. The tournament will adhere to Metro Parks/ASA rules, which are available at http://www.louisvilleky.gov/MetroParks/recreation/athletics/Softball/.
The cost to play is $150 per team. Interested players and teams can register through March 30 in person at the Louisville Tennis Center, 3783 Illinois Avenue, across from the Louisville Zoo. Payment can be made by cash, Visa, MasterCard, personal check or money order.
Winners receive a team trophy, championship t-shirts and the right to play in a regionally-sanctioned ASA tournament, with the teams responsible for their entry fee. Teams are guaranteed to play at least three games before elimination.
Please contact Metro Parks Athletics at 456-8173 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or would like further information regarding these tournaments.
