Location

KSSC Fall Softball is played at a variety of locations in and around Kingston.  Diamonds include, but are not limited to:

  • Keeley Rd (Bowes Park)
  • Inverary Diamond
  • Cloverdale Diamonds (pending)

Note: Every effort is made to equalize the start times, field quality and game locations across all leagues.

The City of Kingston currently has a shortage of quality local adult-sized diamonds, and as a result, some games are played outside the city centre area.
