 Please check out Mitigation at the Sands and Beverages and Balls before coming to practice or play. Schedules are posted online. We are now operating at 50% capacity inside. Outside we are at 100% capacity but are spread out over a larger area for social distancing. Thanks,  Mike  

We got a go from the Governor's office.  The first two weeks we will be operating at 50% capacity. Not all teams will play each week. After two weeks we should be able to operate at full capacity outdoors with social distancing and indoors at 50% capacity.  There are new beer stands (with sanitizer) and foot showers waiting for you. We have the same amount of seating but it is spread out over a larger area for social distancing. We now have a plan! Mitigation at the Sands  Beverages and Balls  Mike

Finances:  Teams would get a check in sometime in October to cover any unplayed games.   Wash your hands and don't touch your face so we can have a great summer. Mike

People have been commenting that they are not getting their matches finished. So we are going to 21, 21, 15 rally scoring for 6:30 and 7:30 matches. 8:30 is 25, 25, 25. If we are getting done too fast we will up the points to 23.

Softball 

Wednesday Softball: At 3:00 the fields are OK.

At the Sands we play softball for fun.  Safety and sportsmanship are emphasized.  Beer, sodas and snacks are served at the Cabana Bar between the fields.  Follow the information link for league descriptions, softball forms and availability.

In 2020 we are going to one field therefore Thursday Co-Ed softball is now full, Wednesday Men's is full. We are not doing Sunday Co-Ed.

For the 2020 season teams can use 47 or 52 core restricted flight balls.
