Twenty collegiate teams will compete March 1-2 in Virginia Wesleyan College’s 16th Annual Beach Blast Softball Tournament, being held at the Princess Anne Athletic Complex (PAAC) in Virginia Beach. The fast-pitch tournament, which will have 40 games this year, began in 1998 under the leadership of former VWC Head Softball Coach Conrad Parker. In 2008 the organizational reigns were passed on to the College’s current Head Softball Coach Brandon Elliott, who continues to build the tournament's momentum and attract teams from across the country. Sponsored by the City of Virginia Beach, the VWC Beach Blast continues to be one of the most successful Division III softball tournaments in the nation. The competition is held at PAAC, a state-of-the-art facility with eight lighted fields, covered dug outs and bleachers, concessions, restrooms and a full-time field maintenance crew. Tickets are $7 for one day, $10 for the entire tournament. In the event of inclement weather, a rain date is scheduled for March 3.
