Connecting kids with their heroes the focus of 2025 and 2026 Softball Australia National Championships schedule

Published Tue 14 May 2024

Softball Australia is delighted to announce the dates and venues of the 2025 and 2026 National and Regional Championships. Through a competitive tender process, which was entered by 11 softball venues from around Australia, the successful host venues were chosen.  

Venues were chosen based on a range of factors, including the suitability of the facilities, organisational plans for the running of the tournaments, the history of successful hosting of national events and financial revenue opportunities.   

Our U14 boys and girls will have a fantastic opportunity to play beside their softball heroes with the U14 Regional Girls Championship playing alongside the Open Women’s National Championship in Waverley, Victoria, and the U14 Boys Regional Championship playing in conjunction with the Open Men's National Championship in Canberra, ACT.  

Since 1947, the Softball Australia National Championships have showcased the best softball in the country, with State pride and national team selection on the line at every event.  

We look forward to what is sure to be an exciting schedule over the next few years.
