Softball on the plate at Jubilee Oval
STACEY Walker from the Dubbo City Softball club has sent in some photos from a recent Come-and-try Day at the softball diamond on Jubilee Oval.
Following that successful day, the competition pitched off on October 17, and today (Thursday, October 31) teams are lining up for round 3.
“Ours is a mixed competition starting at 14 years of age and everyone is welcome. New players can be accommodated,” Stacey said.
I love the philosophy the club shares:
“Sometimes you get the perfect catch. Sometimes you hit the ball

perfectly and sometimes you fall on your face, twice. But sport is about getting back up and trying again and overcoming your fears and challenging yourself to do better and be better every time you play.
“Trying a new sport is scary. It’s a new set of skills to learn and a real possibility that you won’t be the best, but just by trying, you’re already 100 per cent better than the person sitting on the coach or laughing from the sidelines.”
