Dear Raiders of 2016…..

 

there’s a batting party coming up and guess who’s invited…….EVERYONE!

 

2016 is set to be one of the biggest years for softball tournaments.  With more tournaments being added to the softball calendar, there are more opportunities than ever before to get involved.

 
With our usual attendance at the Diamond Series, Manchester Firstball and the East Midlands Tournament, there are some other fantastic tournaments that you can get involved in. Below we have added a list of tournaments taken mainly from the British Softball Federation website.

 

Are you a new Raider? Getting more time in the pub than on the pitch? Want to get more experience and spend more time on the field? Make sure you save the dates for the Recreational tournaments such as Bristol DD (28th-29th May), the Manchester LGBT Tournament (4th June) and “Discoball” (9th July)! Details of our very own Raiders Invitational will be announced as soon as the date has been confirmed.

 

We’re also looking for volunteers from more experienced players to support our newer teams at these D level events.

 

But in order for any of this to happen we also need Captains to come forward to lead our teams.

 

 

 

 

Richard, our tournaments manager will be on hand to give you any support.

 

He can help you with;

  • Tournament information
  • Team entries and liaising with tournament organisers
  • Arranging payment of entry fees
  • Help with team recruitment, coordination and transport

 

Some of the Raiders have already put their names forward as captains and are detailed on the spreadsheet. If you’d like to join one of their teams, then email the captain directly.  If you’d like to start your own team, be added to the tournaments pool list (i.e. available to play if needed) or have any questions, then get in touch.

 

CALLING TOURNAMENT POOL PLAYERS!

Finally if you’re going to be playing play tournaments this year and want to join the pool players list, then let us know and I’ll add you to the list.

We’ll need to know the following details;

name

level you like to play

… it’s that easy… so when captains are looking for players and want to send something out to the pool list, we can send the right emails, to the right people, for the right tournament!

 

So just to round up:

get in touch with tournament captains if there is already one listed

let us know if you want to play/captain a tournament that doesn’t have contact name already

give me a shout if you’re willing to support our D level teams at tournaments (we’ve all been there)

email me your details if you want to be put on the tournament pool list!

 

Any questions send us an email.
