MANASSAS, VIRGINIA - Teams going to the 14th ISSA World Championships at Manassas, Virginia this year will be part of a milestone event. The tournament will be the 20th world-class senior softball event held in Prince William County which gave rise to the area becoming known internationally as the Senior Softball Capital of the World. Teams from throughout the United States (and sometimes international locations) find this event to be a preferred destination to compete in senior softball. With excellent softball facilities surrounded by many historical sites that were significant to the growth and development of the Country, some players schedule in additional days to visit area attractions including our Nation's Capitol. So why not explore our nation's heritage and learn more about the people, the times and the decisions that made America while in Manassas for the ISSA World Championships this year.
Competition has been programmed for senior women beginning at age 40 and senior men at age 50. Again this year the World Championships will also include Masters Divisions for 35+, 40+ and 45+ men's teams. The Prince William County/Manassas CVB has mailed tournament packets to all teams that have previously expressed an interest in participating. Others may request a tournament packet from the ISSA Office or copy the needed forms and information from the ISSA website.
