Slow pitch for seniors to start April 27

Games to be played at the Parksville ball fields every Friday morning

A new slo-pitch league for seniors is being started this coming spring.

The league that began indoors at Arbutus Meadows two years ago, was such a huge success, say the organizers, Parksville Golden Oldies Sports Association, that they’ve decided to start a spring/summer league to be played at the Parksville ball fields every Friday a.m.

Ladies 55+ and men 69+ can play. One of the organizers, Randy White, said it will be a fun league that is meant for those who want to get back into a game they love and folks who want to take a step back from competitive ball.

The first match will begin on Friday, April 27, at 9 a.m. Players will be given jerseys to keep and all equipment is supplied except gloves.

“If you want a bit of exercise, socializing with players and just have a good Friday morning, then come and join us and don’t be shy if you haven’t played in years – we all went through that feeling but it quickly goes away,” said White.

For further information contact @White at or 250-468-2339, or contact Alex at or 250-752-0011.
