About the Saguaro Cup

The Saguaro Cup Softball Tournament began in 1994 with 28 teams and has taken place every year since, culminating now with Saguaro Cup 21 in 2014. The tournament has grown into the premier Gay Softball Tournament in the Southwest, consistently ranking as one of the largest Gay Softball Tournaments in the country, following closely behind the Gay Softball World Series. Covered both locally and nationally in Gay and Softball related media, the Saguaro Cup is sanctioned by the Amateur Softball Association (ASA).

In 2005, the tournament was renamed the Saguaro Cup Sports Festival as a response to the addition of new kickoff and closing parties to the tournament. The 2010 Tournament also set a new record in the history of the Saguaro Cup with the participation of 101 teams from all across the country. We look forward to having you participate in this years festivities!

The tournament is scheduled for April 11-13, 2014.
