Softball Ulster are pleased to announce the greatest number of teams ever registered in the region.
The 11 teams who competed in 2022 have returned and are joined by a brand new team – The Newtonabbey Phoenix.
The task of fitting in 12 teams to a round robin schedule while arranging training days for Ulster players and meeting the deadline of finishing the league due to the SINCC date set by Softball Ireland simply proved impossible. Therefore, this year’s league will be a two division competition, with 6 teams in each division based on last year’s finishing positions and our newest team entering directly into Division 2.
At the conclusion of the league, a playoff game will take place between the lowest finishing team in D1 and the champions of D2.
This will decide which of those teams competes in D1 next year. Further info on the requirements for this game as well as the league schedule will follow shortly!
The next event on the Softball Ulster calendar is the Start of Season Blitz, which is scheduled for Sunday, 23 April, with league play beginning soon after.
