PONY Nationals Softball Returns to Loudoun County
PONY Baseball/Softball and the Loudoun County Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Services (PRCS) recently announced a three-year agreement to hold the PONY Nationals Fastpitch Softball Tournament in Loudoun County from 2013-2015.
The county hosted the tournament for eleven straight years before it was moved to Cary and Raleigh, NC, in 2007. Loudoun will host the 16U and 18U divisions in 2013, the 10U, 12U and 14U divisions in 2014, and the 16U and 18U divisions in 2015. The tournament draws more than 100 teams, which may play as many as 250 games during the six-day tournament in August of each year.
“PONY’s decision to bring this tournament back home to Loudoun was based on the county’s quality facilities, our ability to maintain fields at the highest standards and, most importantly, our experience hosting successful large national events,” summarized PRCS Sports Division Manager Dave Carver. Games will be played on 31 fields at the following parks: Phillip A. Bolen Memorial Park, Potomack Lakes Sportsplex, Edgar Tillet Park, Trailside Park, Brambleton Park (the fields near Briar Woods High School) and Claude Moore Park.
