Softball WA looking for players for Aboriginal Women’s Softball Carnival

SOFTBALL WA is looking for Indigenous women to take part in its Aboriginal Women’s Softball Carnival next month.

Collaborating with the Department of Sport and Recreation the carnival that was launched last year will use the new Social 7s format, a slow-pitch version of the game, which is fast and easy to play.

Softball WA chief executive Dean Burton said the carnival was aimed at girls and women, who currently played softball, or had not played in a while or were new to the game.

“The intent is to provide everyone with the opportunity to get involved in all aspects of the game, whilst providing a fun and enjoyable environment for all,” he said.

In the lead up to the carnival, Softball WA will also hold a “Come and Try Clinic” for anyone who had not played before or wanted to refine their skills.
