(Elizabeth City, NC, August 11, 2011) – Elizabeth City is just days away from its first youth baseball tournament at the new South Park Sports Complex. On Aug. 20, up to 30 teams representing Nations Baseball Virginia, drawing players from Southeastern Virginia and Northeastern North Carolina, will travel with their families to Elizabeth City for the competition, while staying in area hotels and dining in local restaurants. The weekend is a culmination of an effort by Elizabeth City/Pasquotank County Parks and Recreation and the Elizabeth City Area Convention & Visitors Bureau (ECACVB) to bring sports tourism to the area while providing local youth a new sports facility.
“We are very excited to have the opportunity to serve both our local youth teams as well as neighboring leagues with such a beautiful facility,” said Parks and Recreation Director Bobbi White. “Elizabeth City offers a close-in destination with excellent playing fields and family-friendly amenities, and we are excited about getting the fall season underway.” [read more]
