Newly formed Belgian Wheelchair Softball Teams already ready to play ball.
On Saturday 29th of October two newly formed Wheelchair Softball Teams have held their first ever practice session in the indoor Peerdsbos sport center of Brasschaat. Where the first “G-Slow Pitch” Wheelchair Tournament ever in Belgium, will be held on February 18th 2017.
For the tournament organization, led by Sigrid Gontier, it was actually a kind of dress rehearsal slash tryout. The materials – such as different types of balls and bats – have been thoroughly tested and the gameplay has been adjusted to meet players and locations requirements. The outcome was a super fun and sporty afternoon for the two test teams and a well thought-out game concept for indoor play in the sports hall.
The coming months, we are going to generate quite some local and hopefully national publicity for this G-Slow Pitch (Wheelchair) Tournament and are looking forward to a big turnout.
The Borgerhout Squirrels will hold a G-Slow Pitch Wheelchair Tournament on Saturday the 18th of February 2017 at the sports hall Peerdsbos in the city of Brasschaat, Belgium.
They want to attract handicapped as well as able-bodied players and show that our Baseball and Softball Community is ready to combine forces with the G-Sports out there.
G-Sports in Flanders are Sports for all kids and adults with all sorts of handicaps. For us the G in G-Sports stands for enthusiasm, fun in sports, equality, fair play and integration of ….
The G-Slow Pitch Tournament is an INCLUDING event. Which states that people with and without disabilities should play sports together. The goal: to sensibilize all athletes (with and without disabilities) to learn – by playing our sports together – the real gameplay and meaning of baseball and softball. And, don’t forget: HAVING FUN !!
Everyone is welcome to attend this event. To support and above all to help out and preferably participate on the field.
