REGISTRATION COUNTDOWN

SIGN-UP ENDS MONDAY, JUNE 20TH AT MIDNIGHT!

The 2022 ISPS El Dorado Open Championships are coming to Bogota, Colombia!

Slow pitch softball had always been our passion. We grew up playing in the park with friends, and eventually started competing in tournaments. So when we heard about the possibility of hosting the 1st Annual 2022 ISPS El Dorado Open Championships in Bogota, Colombia, we knew we had to raise our hand and say; "si, podemos!"(yes, we can!).

 

We packed my bags and headed to Bogota a few days to learn more about the city and the country of Colombia. Upon arrival, we were greeted by a beautiful city nestled in the Andes Mountains.  After settling into our hotel, we headed over to the ballpark to check out the facilities and slow pitch community.

 

The field looked great and the athletes and teams were serious about slow pitch.  This encouraged us - Bogota was ready to take on the challenge of hosting an official ISPS event.

 

As the tournament approaches, we quickly realized that Bogota is like no other place we have yet to play slow pitch.  The altitude, Bogota currently sits at over 8,660 ft above sea level, really makes the ball move differently.  That plus getting accustomed to the thin air, is something the athletes will need to battle.  We recommend a couple days before to acclimate to the thin air.

 

Slow pitch is a serious sport.  

Just ask any of the athletes from the local rec center who get together for some weekend competitions and tournaments. They take their game seriously, and they love to prove that they're the best at it.

And when they hear about the 1st Annual 2022 ISPS El Dorado Open Championships in Bogota, Colombia, they know that they have to compete. It's an opportunity to show their skills on a global stage and maybe even win the whole thing!

 

Get your team to start practicing hard, and by the time June 23 rolls around, they're feeling confident. They board their flight to Bogota and head to the tournament venue at EL SALITRE.

 

The competition will be fierce but after a weekend of intense play, which team will emerge victorious?  Will it be yours?  Will you be the 1st Annual ISPS El Dorado Open Champions!?

 

We look forward to this year's tournament and hope to some of the best competition of the South American continent. Thanks for reading!
