Sydney Women's Invitational 2013

Baseball NSW officially invites club teams from all over Australia and internationally to participate in 2013 Sydney Women’s Invitational. 
 
The Sydney Women’s Invitational will return in January 2013 looking to once again bring the best women from around Australia and internationally to compete in a high quality tournament. As has been the tradition over the previous two years, the Sydney Women’s Invitational will be held over four (4) exciting days of baseball with the tournament concluding on Australia Day.
 
In addition, to the format used previously we are also pleased to announce that 2013 Sydney Women’s Invitational will include a Division 2 competition. The purpose of the Division 2 competition is to give the growing number of young girls an opportunity to experience more tournament baseball at a suitable level. We envisage the Division 2 teams will include players that are currently playing in junior teams or division 2 club teams in their local competition (under15 State players included) 
 
The tournament will be played at Aquatic Reserve, the home ground of the Manly Warringah Eagles in the NSW State League and Manly Junior Baseball Association. 
 
Aquatic Reserve and the Manly association have great experience in hosting major baseball events. In recent years, Manly has hosted Claxton Shield games which saw a crowd in excess of 1000 people in attendance. 
 
The location of the tournament will provide interstate teams with the opportunity to experience the beach culture in the Manly area in their spare time.
