About Us

Want to know more about Eastern Raiders?…

If you want to play softball at any level come and join us. We aim to provide the enjoyment of softball to everyone who wants to play.

The Eastern Raiders Softball Club plays in the Waverley Softball Association at Jells Park, Wheelers Hill in Melbourne (Melway 71-K6). We are also affiliated with the Victorian Softball Association and Softball Australia. The Eastern Raiders Softball Club was formed in 1990 following the amalgamation of Mount Waverley Softball Club and Blackburn North Softball Club.

Eastern Raiders welcomes players of all ages and capabilities to join us. We field teams in all age groups from junior T-ball through to senior A-grade. Opportunities exist for girls of all ages to advance through various grades of competition and to participate in teams for the Waverley Association, State and National Championships and even Masters! (over 35). We also cater for boys, who can play in our T-ball and Primary B (up to Grade 5) competition.

We have a very enthusiastic and competitive Masters scene at Raiders. Ladies over 35 years of age have competed in Masters tournaments around Australia. All standards are welcome.

We also field a team in the Melbourne Softball Association winter season played at Fawlkner Park in Melbourne. All standards are welcome.

We encourage all family members to join in, and our main focus is fun and participation. We like to see our players and parents become involved in coaching, umpiring, scoring and any other facet of the club.

Raiders have repeatedly enjoyed success on the field each season. We have enjoyed alot of success throughout the last ten years.  Last season – which ended in March 2016, we had multiple teams competing throughout the finals series. We also saw many players compete in association and state teams.

The Waverley summer softball season is played on Saturdays and runs from October through to the end of March. There are breaks for long weekends, Christmas and school holidays.

Go on – take the plunge, get involved in a great team sport, you will not regret it. Further information and contact details are available on the administration page.
