Softball Capacity

Softball has reached capacity. A waitlist has been created that teams are encouraged to join and register their interest. Teams will only be added to the competition from the waitlist should another team withdraw.

Please note that while capacity for Softball has been reached, members can still join existing teams via the normal registration process. If you are an individual looking to find a team, we encourage you to use the 'Find a Team/Partner' thread on the WMG2017 Community

Registration Close Date

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.
