Currituck selected to host summer softball state tournament

Currituck County has been selected to host the 2019 Tarheel Softball State Tournament this summer!  From July 18-21, tournament games will be held at the Parks and Recreation complex at Community Park in Barco. A total of 32 youth softball teams from all parts of the state are expected to converge on Currituck County, bringing hundreds of players, coaches, family members, and fans to the area.

Four age groups will compete for championships, including 8U (8 and under), 10U, 12U, and 15U.  Currituck County expects to have teams entered in the 8U and 10U divisions as automatic bids from the host county.  The Tarheel Softball League divides the state into seven districts, with the winner of each district invited to the state tournament.

Opening ceremonies for the Tarheel State Tournament will be held on Thursday, July 18.  The public is invited to come out and support our local teams while enjoying the large tournament-style atmosphere in Community Park.

With a busy tournament schedule for 2019, Currituck’s baseball and softball complex continues to bring more people to Currituck, provides a boost for local businesses, and increases the exposure of potential guests for the tourism industry.
