“Give Softball A Go”
 We all know summer is that time when Kiwis like to roll up their sleeves, put on their boardies, slip into some jandals and have a good time with a few laughs. But we want kiwis to think ‘Summer, Sun, Softball’ this coming season.
At Softball NZ we have come up with a slightly different concept to promote our sport nationally,  to help our clubs/associations increase membership and make the public more aware of our sport, without losing that great summer vibe that us kiwi’s love.
Give Softball a Go” month this coming September
