Athlete registrations for World Masters Games 2017 close 3 March 2017 (NZT). You must register by this date if you plan to compete in the Games. Note that disciplines/events will close early if they reach capacity as numbers are strictly limited.

3 March 2017 is also the date by which teams must be registered and have met their minimum athlete numbers including essential non-playing official roles. Team minimums vary by sport and information is detailed in the Sports Information Guide for each sport.

Additional team members over and above team minimums can continue to join existing teams until 31 March 2017 however a late entry fee of $50 will apply.

Baseball Sports Information Guide

See the Baseball Sports Information Guide for Scheduling, Venue, Umpires and Scorers along with other important competition information.

This will be updated regularly as further information comes to hand. Team draws will be confirmed closer to Games time once registrations have closed all teams are confirmed in the competition.


Competition Details

A Grade (Competitive)

B Grade (Recreational)

The competition is 'open' to both men and women. The Baseball Organising Committee anticipates that the teams will be predominantly made up of men. Women can play in a men's team, or all-female teams can enter any division. 

Proposed Age Categories

A Grade (Competitive) 35+ and 45+

B Grade (Recreational) 35+ and 45+

Open Grade 55+

The age category you will compete in for Baseball will be determined as at 31 December 2017.

For teams, the category you compete in is based on the age of the youngest team member.

For example, if your youngest team member is 44 during Games time but has turned 45 by 31 December 2017, you would compete in the 45+ age category.
