About us

Softball ACT currently has over 1200 registered members, and hoping to grow our numbers each year as it is an enjoyable sport. Our members range from 4 years of age, playing diamond ball to our more mature members in their 50s and 60s who play in masters competitions across the country. In addition to players, there are many coaches, administrators, scorers and umpires who make up the Softball ACT membership.

In addition to our regular junior and senior competitions, Softball ACT plays host to a number of significant tournaments and carnivals each season.

The Australian Open Men’s Skins tournament attracts leading male players from around the country and overseas to compete each December in the country’s most exciting men’s softball competition. This tournament is used as part of the selection process for the Australian men’s team which will see the final players gaining selection into the Aussie Steelers team who will be competing in New Zealand mid-December playing in the worlds qualifier.

At a local level, our Men’s league is home to some of the biggest names in softball and is played on Monday and Tuesday nights, and our Saturday Women’s League brings juniors and women to the diamonds for a massive competition between the months of October and April. Our junior softball is played in a single competition, held at the Hawker International Softball Centre). 

The Hawker International Softball Centre features a fully catered clubhouse and three international-standard diamonds.
