The Cloverdale Fury U21s will host western championships this August.

Softball City to host U21 western championships

Cloverdale Fury set to host tournament Aug. 6-9 in South Surrey.

Some of the best under-21 softball players from throughout Western Canada will take to the fields at Softball City this summer.

The South Surrey facility will host the 2015 U21 Men’s and Women’s Western Canadian Softball Championships, it was announced last week.

The tournament will run Aug. 6-9, and the Cloverdale Fury U21 women’s team will be the event’s official host club.

“Softball BC is very pleased to have the Cloverdale Fury represent BC as the host committee for this prestigious tournament,” said Jake Dewitt, president of the BC Amateur Softball Association.

“The combination of our host team, along with our facility at Softball City, is sure to make this a memorable event.”

Teams from all western provinces, as well as the Yukon and Northwest Territories, are eligible to compete.

Cloverdale Fury organizing committee members are currently looking for sponsors and for volunteers to help with many aspects of the event.

“We are thankful to the Western Canadian Softball Association and Softball BC for awarding our group the opportunity to host this great event,” said Merv Sandrel.

“An event this large requires many helping hands and we welcome our local community to volunteer and help us make this an event to remember.”

For information on the tournament, or to volunteer, email Sandrel at merv@ballparksports.ca or call 604-576-7865.
