History and Recognition

In our 40th year of Incorporation, Softball NT wants to celebrate everyone who paved the way before us and the stories and memories shared by so many over the years. We know SNT has been around longer, but let’s use this significant milestone to get the ball rolling.

Have you got any photos or memorabilia?
Send us copies of what you have so we can collate it all into one great big story.
