SPO and ISSA is proud to announce…

THE USA–CANADA SENIOR BORDER BATTLE

Slo-Pitch Ontario and the International Senior Softball Association ("ISSA") have agreed to an annual event that will bring together the best Senior players from both sides of the border!

The inaugural USA-Canada Senior Border Battle will feature five divisions of play (50, 55, 60, 65 and 70) and will be hosted by the ISSA at the Art Van Sports Complex, in Rockford, Michigan, on August 3-5, 2018. Slo-Pitch Ontario will host in 2019 at a location to be determined.

This year, Ontario will send one team in each of the divisions to play against three US teams, with the top US team then playing Team Ontario for the Senior Border Battle Championship!

“This is a fantastic opportunity for our Ontario Senior teams,” said Tom Buchan, Chief Executive Officer of SPO. “Players who have supported our Program for years will now have the opportunity to represent their Province on the international stage.”

Executive Director of the ISSA, R. B. Thomas, Jr., commented, “Ontario, and in particular, Slo-Pitch Ontario, has a very strong Seniors slo-pitch program, and we are very excited about entering into this joint venture.”

More information will be announced as it becomes available.
