Walk On The Wild Side Tourney Returns To Wellington


The 16th annual Walk on the Wild Side Mother’s Day USSSA Softball Tournament returned to Wellington last weekend. The event featured 76 teams in the U-12 through U-18 age groups.

Club teams traveled from as far as the Treasure Coast to Miami and gathered in Wellington at three different parks.

The Wellington Wild is the village’s club team, which hosts the event each year. Board Member Jenna Marquez told the Town-Crier that the tournament has had a home in the village for the past 16 years.

The fields were occupied by teams, and parents watching from the stands while the girls played softball throughout the weekend, from early morning until the evening.

Vendors provided food and snacks, while specialty shops provided gear for the teams and event t-shirts.

It is no secret to sports enthusiasts across the state that Wellington provides some of the best facilities in the area for many sporting events.
