WAGGA Softball is hopeful its fledgling competition with cross town rivals Albury will extend into a three-team competition with ACT showing interest in joining next year.
The first name will be etched onto the shield when Wagga attempts to overturn a 3-2 deficit from the opening round of games at Albury at French Fields on Sunday.
A point is allocated for each team win, with fixtures played across under-15 boys and girls, under-18 boys and girls, open men and open women.
In the first round Albury won the open men, under-18 girls and under-15 boys, Wagga took out under-15 girls and open women and under-18 men wasn't played due to a lack of numbers.
"This is the first time it's been played," Wagga Softball representative coordinator Sharon Hall said.
"We've done a lot of work on it over the last year to get it up and running, and hopefully it becomes a permanent fixture on both our calendars.
"With its success we've had some interest from ACT to play one round in all three regions, and that would just strengthen it a bit more.
"They've heard about it and asked if they could possibly be included, hopefully that will eventuate."
Hall said Wagga is confident of overhauling Albury with a few key inclusions across their teams.
"We've got a few inclusions that weren't available last time, so hopefully we're a bit stronger this time around," she said.
The open men's and women's clashes will be live streamed on Softball Wagga's Facebook page.
