We’ve only got three softball sessions left this season! We’ll be at Preston Park this evening from 6pm and then agin next Wednesday. We’ll have our last session of the season on the 26th. Come out and play ball while you still can!
We ran a fantastic training session for Trans Can Sport last Monday! All the participants were very enthusiastic and really enjoyed the session. We’ve already had some participants interested in joining our club. Thank you to Wendy and Brian for coming along and helping out. We’ll be running another session for Trans Can Sport on Monday 24th September. Once again, we’ll need some help to run the session and teach the participants how to play, so if you’re able to come to Preston Park from 6pm on the 24th please let me know!

We have a Meetup group for the Beachcombers. If you don’t know www.meetup.com, it’s a great resource to find all kinds of groups in the local area from sports clubs to dining clubs and language classes etc. Primarily we’re using it to promote to and grow the team but it can also serve as a social platform for team chat and to confirm attendance at practices and tourneys.
In order to excite new players to join up we want to demonstrate that we have a thriving team. If you haven’t already done so please sign up FOR FREE to Meetups here. After that you can join the Slowpitch Softball group here and create a profile extolling the virtues of playing softball!
Once you’re a member please RSVP to all the practices listed under events to encourage new members to come along. Keep a look out for emails when new team events are posted.
Thank you so much. We’re already getting a lot of new faces signing up, which is awesome!
That’s all for now folks!
