2013 Tournament – 17th August 2013
We are excited to announce that the London Legal Softball Tournament (re-named as the Merrill Datasite Softball Tournament for this year) will take place on Saturday 17 August 2013 in Regent’s Park. For those who are new to legal softball, the tournament has been an annual one-day event for more than 20 years and it is an opportunity for the firms in the league to compete against each other for the highly coveted London Legal Softball Tournament Trophy as well as the Goblet Trophy and Plate Trophy whilst having a great day out in the park (usually in excellent weather).
Final scheduling is to be confirmed but the day will start at about 10.00am and when softball finishes (late afternoon) all players and spectators retire to the Princess of Wales pub on Chalcot Road where we have hired out the newly refurbished downstairs area and the “Banksy beer garden” for an almighty knees-up.
New for this year is that the tournament is sponsored by Merrill Datasite, however, there will still be a cost involved for each team taking part to cover the pitch hire in Regent’s Park (likely to be in the region of £75 depending on the number of teams).
If you do not think you will have enough players available to form a full team on the day but you have a group of at least 5 players or so that wish to play then please let us know and we can see if we can join some firms together for the day.
