LEESBURG, Va. – One of Loudoun’s premier sports complexes has received national recognition from the Senior Softball-USA organization.
During its annual meeting in Las Vegas, officials with Senior Softball-USA presented Potomack Lakes Sportsplex with its Complex of the Year award. The organization, which hosts international softball tours and promotes senior softball throughout the world, has been hosting tournaments in Loudoun for 12 years.
“In 2018, there was severe flooding in Loudoun County and no one expected the games to be played but the Potomack Lakes Sportsplex field crew managed to pull another complex from floodwaters so we could complete one of our premier tournaments,” said Senior Softball-USA COO Terry Hennessey. “This proves the point – it isn’t the age of the complex, it is not whether it is turf, a truly great complex remains that way because of the people behind it.”
The Potomack Lakes Sportsplex is one of five Loudoun complexes that host major youth fast pitch and adult slow pitch tournaments annually. According to a study through George Washington University, sports tournaments contributed about $20.5 million to Loudoun’s economy.
