World No. 3 Canada will open the World Games on 9 July against No. 6 Chinese Taipei, followed by No. 7 Italy the following day and against No. 1 USA on July 11th.

Softball Canada has announced its 15-player Canadian Women’s National Team roster that will compete at The World Games 2022 from 9-13 July in Birmingham, Alabama.

The athletes were selected by the Women’s National Team coaching staff based on a series of open identification camps, a selection camp held two weeks ago, scouting at the university/college level and past performances.

World No. 3 Canada will open the World Games on 9 July against No. 6 Chinese Taipei, followed by No. 7 Italy the following day and against No. 1 USA on July 11th. The other pool includes No. 2 Japan, No. 4 Mexico, No. 5 Puerto Rico and No. 8 Australia. The top two teams from each pool will advance to the semi-finals. 

Canada recently completed their Celebration Tour stops in Ontario, going 4-0 in a series against No.10 Netherlands. 

The team is currently in Surrey for the Canada Cup that will run until 26 June, followed by another Celebration Tour series against No. 11 Czech Republic in Saskatchewan next week (June 29 to July 1), prior to travelling to Birmingham for the World Games.
