If your school does not have a team, come down to the park (Carlton Reserve, Otumoetai) on Saturday from 8.00am and we will find a team for you.


We are holding “Have a Go” days at 10am-12pm on Saturday 8th and Saturday 15th October, 2022 at Carlton Reserve. New players can come and give Softball a go and are welcome to stay and watch the adults play.


WBOPSA Slowpitch Season

Slowpitch Softball is played on Friday nights and starts up again on 28th October - 6pm, Carlton Reserve, Otumoetai.

Slowpitch is ideal for new players or those that wish to play a more leisurely game of Softball. Played in mixed teams, including at least four females, the ball is lobbed slowly for the batter for higher chance of a hit.

Get a team of family, friends or work collegues together and enter now.

If you don't have a team, turn up at 5.30 pm on the Friday night and we will put you in a team.

If you are new and interested in playing this summer, contact Patrick Zeinert (Slowpitch Coordinator) on 027 247 4150.
