MAYORS WELCOME

Our vision and concept for the tournament reflects and supports the long term vision for the city – Small City Benefits with Big City Ambition.

Our city has a youthful population with one of New Zealand’s top universities - Massey University being located within a short distance of the CBD. Alongside this is a huge catchment area of provincial towns with a cumulative population of one million people - and all within an easy drive time of Palmerston North City.

Regions and provincial cities of the likes of Hawkes’ Bay, Whanganui, Wellington, Horowhenua, Taranaki, Wairarapa, and Taupo will all be able to engage with the tournament due to Palmerston North’s central location. The CBD and wider city is easy to navigate with a variety of recreational areas, pools and gyms.

The city welcomes all visitors, competitors, and fans of softball and we look forward to seeing you here in Palmerston North City in 2020.
Ngā mihi. Grant Smith (City Mayor)
