WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — This summer we met the men of the Wilmington Senior Softball Association. Now, they are taking their game from the diamond to the greens.
The association is holding a golf tournament open to golfers of all ages on Friday September 22 at the Echo Farms golf course. The tournament is a chance to raise awareness of the team and hopefully gain new members. It is also a fundraiser to help them purchase important supplies such as defibrillator units for the league.
It’s beneficial for those playing in the tournament for two reasons.
“One is to have a great time,” Wilmington Senior Softball Association Vice President Walter Aaron said. “Secondly, anybody who doesn’t know about our league, we’d like for them to get a chance to know us. Come out and play some softball. There’s a large senior group here in Wilmington and surrounding counties. We’d like nothing better but for more guys and women to come out and play some softball with us.”
