South Africa first tried to host a Women’s World Championship, after the successful 2000 Men’s World Championship in East London, when our country submitted a bid to host the 2006 Senior Women Championship at the congress Nanjing, China. The bid failed with the Championship awarded to Beijing. In October 2007 at the International Softball Federation’s congress in Manila, Philippines, Softball South Africa was awarded the rights to host the next Junior Women World Championships.
The staging of the IX ISF Junior Women World Championships in Cape Town in December 2011 is expected to generate within the sporting industry, an unprecedented level of interest and exposure.
South Africa has a proven track record of hosting major international sporting events. Besides being a host country for the 2010 Football World Cup the country also hosted a number of other high profile international sports events such as the Cricket and Rugby World Cups, the UCBI Cycling World events, the FIVB Beach Volleyball, the 20-20 Cricket World Cup and many others.
Softball aims to build on that success and ensure that South Africa remains a sporting destination of choice in the world.
Our mission is to deliver an event of the highest standards, to attract visitors to South Africa, to enhance South Africa’s profile, to strengthen our sporting and cultural infrastructure and to maximise the economic, social and environmental benefits of events to South Africa and the Western Cape.
Sport, like softball, holds a very special place in the hearts of South Africans. Throughout recent history sport has become a beacon of hope to many of the poorest and disadvantaged people of this nation. The hosting of a junior women’s event will ensure that this legacy of nation building continue.
