Our 2021-2022 Summer Softball Teams

Updated: Feb 16



Despite another uncertain run-up and a delayed start to the 2021-2022 summer Softball season, Peninsula Softball Club has managed to thrive and to field 21 teams in the Manly Warringah Softball Association Competition.


This includes nine teams in the Women's afternoon comp, and twelve teams in the Junior comp - coached by an amazing support team of over 30 different coaches and assistant coaches drawn from the ranks of both Junior and Senior players.


Peninsula is particularly proud to feature five Teeball teams this year, with players ranging in ages from 4-10 years old. Many of these are new players to the game who are keen to have a go and, for the first time ever, we have also assembled two all-boys teams in the Teeball competition - Thunderbirds Black and Thunderbirds Blue. We have also put together a combined Peninsula/Warringah team with Warringah coaches and managed by Peninsula.


Peninsula has also built on the strengths in our Division 1 Junior teams to field an A Grade team again this year - the Sorts - after a year-long absence from the top division. The team is headed up by twins Issie and Ingrid Frew, who played in the Junior Comp for their last year in 2020-2021, and are now looking for new challenges in the Women's premier grade.


We've also got new players having a go in our C Grade team, the Magpies, and women of all experiences and abilities from the ages of 20 to 80 (!) playing across our many teams.


It is great to see so many new and returning players coming back to softball, or having a go for the first time - it bodes well for the future of softball on the beaches.


Thanks also to all those who have volunteered their time to coach, manage, score, and help out with the many volunteer duties needed to keep our comp going - not to mention all the parents, carers, and friends who help get our many softball players, young and old, to the diamonds for training and games. Thanks as well to our sponsors.
