The Sixtyniners softball team, sponsored by healthcare company.; BCWA, are to take part in the sport’s National Championships for the first time on 5-6 September.
Philip Fowles, marketing manager at BCWA, said: “The championships consist of the best teams from all the league: divisions in the UK ~competing to become National Champions, and this is the very first time that the Sixtyniners have qualified; we are extremely pleased for them.”
BCWA’s sponsorship has paid the affiliation fees for the team and enabled them to buy a team strip, with colours to match BCWA’s corporate design, from the Us.
The Sixtyniners who play in the first division in the Bristol Softball First League, have a successful season behind them: they were plate champions at the First Grand Slam Tournament in Chiswick, and runners up in the Bristol Indoor Softball League.
