Byron Bay Allsox softball club is gearing up for another big season in the FNC women’s summer softball league and is looking for new players.

The club is looking to build on a successful 2016 season where our A-grade Whitesox went from bottom of the ladder to the grand final.

The Allsox are looking to field two teams again this season with a strengthened A-grade Whitesox, as well as looking for new recruits for our Redsox team that will  play B or C grade.

Byron Bay Oldsox will be kicking off the season with a run in the Lismore Masters games in September.

To start the season, the Byron Bay Allsox is holding a sign-on, casual training session this Sunday at 3.30pm at the fields in front of the Bangalow Bowling club.

New recruits of all ages and abilities are welcome – we are a social club that likes to have a bit of fun while we play good softball.

For enquiries contact Tracey Johnson on 0413 682 469.
