“Winterball is designed for fun and fitness while we wait to get out into the sun and play some ball. Skills and drills with lots of wiffle!” said Parlow.

STILL WITH BASEBALL, the Parksville Royals have secured winterball facilities at the Arbutus Equestrian Centre in Nanoose Bay on Sunday mornings starting Jan. 6, 2013.
