Masters is a very popular version of softball for those over the age of 35+. Masters events are played domestically and internationally.
Tournaments often accommodate men and women and typically cover three age divisions +35, +45 and 55+ across three grades, as below.
For teams, the category you compete in is based on the age of the youngest team member by a particular date.
