indoor-softball-photo-(1)Indoor Softball is the new rage for summer.

A new version of softball caters to those who don’t like to stand out in the sun and want to play games that don’t attract cancellations owing to wet weather.

Games in the new format are played for an hour and are fast and fun.

Back by popular demand, the Tweed District Softball Association is hosting a Come and Try day after the last successful day had children excited about the start of the new season.

There will also be senior competition as some parents who were watching want to play as well.

The eight-week season starts on October 19. Everyone is welcome to go along to the Come and Try to find out how much fun softball can be – the association is welcoming players from both New South Wales and Queensland.

The event will be held this Saturday October 12 at the Chinderah Indoor Sports Centre on Chinderah Bay Drive. The juniors (around 10–15 years) will start at 10am and the seniors will play at 1pm. Bring a glove if you have one; all other equipment will be supplied and there will be some spare gloves available.

The cost for the season is $80 for juniors and $100 for seniors. Teams are six-a-side mixed (though no more than three males per team). It’s a great way to get your friends together and form your own team.

For further information contact Linda on either [email protected] or 0409 279 934.
