News Coverage: Zaraphath/PDA 2012

The Elite Clubs National League wrapped up our 2012 regular season National Showcase Events series in Zaraphath, New Jersey the weekend of May 26-28, 2012 as part of the uber elite PDA Girls College Showcase, hosted by founding ECNL Member Club Player Development Academy (PDA).

This was the final event in the 2012 regular season of ECNL play, the third season in our history. With the conclusion of this event the fields have been set for our 3rd ECNL National Championship, which will be held the final week in June at the Waukegan Sports Park in Chicago, Illinois.
