Softball Spring Training 2011

There was a great turnout last summer for informal softball games over at the Charlesland Sport & Recreation Park.

FYI, “Softball” is a mixed, recreational version of baseball, also similar to rounders. Just to make it interesting, the ball that you hit (with a bat) is not actually soft – but it’s a larger ball that travels a little slower than a baseball when hit or thrown.

All men and women over the age of 18 are welcome!
The group will form a team and join Softball Ireland’s league with training and games on Monday nights.
Open day training sessions are Monday the 4th of April & Thursday 7th April 6.30- 7.30 at the Charlesland Recreational Center.  Trainings  will be every Monday when games are not scheduled.

The season begins on May 9th and continues throughout the summer.  The Leinster League Cup,Plate, and Bowl tournament will be on the May Bank Holiday weekend this year.
Feel free to join us on the 4th or the 7th to get an idea of what is involved and see if you fancy a summer of fun and team spirit .

Please feel free to contact us by email: if you have any questions or need more information.

No experience is needed – just the willingness to throw a ball, catch a ball, run short distances, and whack a ball with a baseball bat as hard as you can! Good fun.
