Each year we select an ‘Allstar Rookie’ team drawn from LASL players who only play in the league and haven't attended The Players Tournament (TPT), or Advertising World Series (ASWS) before. You don’t have to be brand new to the game, just not a seasoned player who plays outside of the Ad League.
The legendary 3-legged softball is likely to return this year as part of the summer tournament lineup..
Possibly one of the funniest games of softball you will ever see - or play in.
Every player is tied to a member of the opposite sex (or same sex if preferred) throughout the game, which requires a certain level of contortion, especially when batting.
To add a bit of spice, players have to down a tequila slammer before coming up to bat. Slammers are also administered by our roving crew of tequila boys and girls to and for good plays by fielders, or if someone seems too sober.
Entry is strictly limited so get your request in early (initial maximum of 6 entrants per team, or three 3-legged players).
The LASL End of Season Awards Party is for many the highlight of the season, and you don't have to be a winner to attend this great event.
The party is your chance to socialise with your team mates and rival teams, plus it offers the chance to finally see what players look like with their clothes on (so to speak). Often a major revelation!
So book your tickets (£8 in advance, £10 on the door) and let you hair down.
Softball in London started over 30 years ago fuelled by the large number of American ex-pats working in the advertising industry. What was initially an informal set up where rival companies would challenge each other to games grew into an organised league. Find out more.
