Tournaments organised by MSL

Other tournaments in the area

North West Series

Hosts: BaseballSoftballUK

The North West Series is a three-tournament series held at Parrs Wood School in Manchester.

The Alex Hall Memorial Tournament

Hosts: The Alex Hall Memorial Fund for Christies

The memorial tournament for passionate softball player Alex Hall, who sadly died of cancer in 2003. Alex was treated for her illness at the Christies hospital and money raised goes to the Christie Hospital Charity Fund. Entry is for individual players, not whole teams, and teams are designated by the organisers. Fancy dress is encouraged and there is a picnic half way through. It is always immense fun and with the randomised teams there is the opportunity to meet new players. Teams are chosen to include players of all levels of ability, so it is a great chance for new players to play with and learn from more experienced team-mates.

Away Day Tournaments

Most leagues across the country host their own tournaments. Softball is inclusive and friendly and players love to travel to play other tournaments. Well known tournaments include those in Brighton, Bristol, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Leeds, and Liverpool.

LGBTQ+ Tournaments

Several leagues run LGBTQ+ tournaments each year. The atmosphere is relaxed and fancy dress is encouraged! 🌈
