The tournament’s second leg will be staged on the East Coast of Demerara and will feature 32 teams.
To date, Trophy Stall male and female teams, Speedboat XI, Farm XI, Young Warriors, Savannah Stars and Invaders have all signed the dotted line, thus confirming their participation. Omesh XI, Regal XI, Memorex, Helena Number One Vishnu Mandir, Superstar XI, Recharge and Survival XI among others are expected to confirm their involvement this week.
The registration period will end on May 24 with games slated to begin the following weekend, weather permitting.
YOLO Entertainment Director Kirk “Chow Pow” Jardine, stated that the tournament has received major support from teams with a large number signalling their interest in participating.
Over the past few years, softball cricket has found favour with cricket fans throughout the country, with large crowd turning up to witness matches, and this is something Jardine and his team is looking to cash in on.
The first leg of the tournament saw 2011 national champions Wolf Warriors and Regal Champs coming out victorious in the male and female segments respectively.
Those teams however, will not be able to participate as every phase seeks to confirm new champions, paving the way for a tournament of champions after all the phases are completed.
The Guyana Softball League has already endorsed the tournament which, if all goes well, will bowl off at the Better Hope, Lusignan and Helena grounds.
The usual family fun day and chutney/carnival atmosphere will complement the games at all venues with added incentives for fans being provided.
According to the organisers, “The corporate community is urged to support this venture as it seeks to further bring about togetherness amongst our people in a fun filled atmosphere with the family in mind.”
