Womens’ SKINS Tournament


Softball ACT is very excited to promote a new tournament on our calendar this year!


The SKINS format is being optioned for Women’s Softballers in a BRAND NEW TOURNAMENT held the weekend of 23-25 November! 

What is SKINS?

SKINS is a format of club-based tournament that has been successfully run in the ACT for 30 years now for our Men’s players through the Fast Pitch Softball League. It places emphasis on scoring runs, winning innings and all the most exciting parts of Softball!

It pits two teams against each other, not just for the glory of winning, but for the glory of taking home hard-earned dollar-ee-doos!


The SKINS format will operate across ALL grades in the Women’s SKINS, with prize money awarded for:

  • Teams winning any INNINGS*!
  • Teams winning any GAMES*!
  • PITCHERS who pitch a NO HITTER GAME when pitching for the entire game!
  • The BATTER with the MOST HOME RUNS!

*Draws and ties are split evenly between teams

Other information that may be helpful:

  • Grading games (with prize money!) will be played to develop the draw to ensure teams are not playing down to crush the opposition!
  • Grades will be A, B and C (pending entries) – the tournament is for Club teams, or similar (ie Masters!)!
  • All games will be timed (90 mins, no new innings after 80mins) with scores reverting to the last completed innings!
  • Finals will be determined in each Grade by the amount of prize money won rather than simple wins and losses!
  • Softball ACTs Women’s League will have a general bye round this weekend so our local teams can enter!
