27 teams head to Birmingham for the Single-Sex Slowpitch Nationals

Mon 25 Jun 2018

The BSF’s annual Single-Sex National Championships will take place this coming weekend, on 30 June and 1 July, at the Moor Lane Sports Ground in Perry Barr, Birmingham, with 27 teams taking part.

As usual, both the men’s and women’s tournaments will be contested initially in Comp and Rec divisions.  But whereas this will work out nicely in the men’s tournament, with entries from seven Comp teams and six Rec teams, the women’s tournament has entries from just three Comp teams and 11 Rec teams.

So the 14 women’s teams have been divided into two groups of seven, and the three Comp teams will play with a handicap when facing Rec opposition during the initial round-robin only.

Round-robin games will be played all day Saturday, starting at 9.00 am, and will finish on Sunday morning, with playoffs to follow.

For playoff purposes, the men’s competition will break down into Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze, with finals in each category, while the women’s competition will play for Platinum, Gold and Silver trophies.

During the tournament, scores will be updated live on www.bsf-nationals.org.
