The size of ‘the pot’ will once again only be limited by the number of entries that we receive.  The more confirmed entries, the bigger the pot!

There will be prize money for 1st 2nd and 3rd placed teams.  The team placed 1st can expect to take home with them a minimum of £2,500 (approx €3,662 Euros) and dependent on entries, as much as £5,000 (approx €7,324 Euros).

 

Previous participants have enjoyed not only the competition, but our idyllic island and its activities and nightlife and found the people of Guernsey to be hospitable, friendly hosts!

 

**** NEW DATES!!! **** Please note that our traditional dates for the event have now changed to avoid a continued clash with the European Cup events.  The event is now to take place over August 4th, 5th and 6th (Saturday, Sunday & Monday). 

 

For teams taking part in the European Cup events, the GSA Open could prove to be an ideal “warm-up” tournament for the European Cup and Cup Winners Cup! 

 

The tournament is an OPEN event and therefore is not limited to “club teams”!  National Teams are also encouraged to participate.  Once again we aim to host and accommodate competitive fast-pitch softball!

 

We currently utilise two fully enclosed diamonds (1 skimmed and 1 grass), however, if required a third fully enclosed diamond (grass) can be put into operation….. all within yards of each other.  The tournament format guarantees an absolute minimum of five games each, ensuring that every team has maximum diamond time.  Qualified umpires will be in attendance.

 

Interest has already been shown from teams in Belgium, Switzerland and Boston U.S.A. (plus Guernsey team(s)).

 

The closing date for the tournament is June 23rd.

 

I would be more than happy to assist with your travel and accommodation arrangements.

 

Please contact me at the e-mail address below for further information including entrance form(s).

Thank you for your time and I sincerely look forward to hearing from you in the near future……….. Long live fast-pitch!

 

Kind regards
