Men's open coach Ronni Scott says future expansion of Wagga's fledgling softball competition against Albury can play a role in helping retain and attract more male players.
Overall wins across under-15 under-18 and open fixtures were locked at five-all after home and away rounds before the decisive men's fixture, which Albury won 9-1.
The match was called off after three innings due to the wet field but Scott said the team is keen to play more representative fixtures to help their development.
"The men's competition here in not that strong really, for our boys to be facing those type of pitchers is tough," Scott said.
"Wagga mix the two A-grade and three B-grade teams together in the one competition, so the A-graders only play each other once every few weeks.
"More of these competitions between Wagga and Albury would be amazing. The boys even suggested we could play two games in each city twice a month, otherwise it's my concern that we lose those players who want to player in a higher competition.
"There was a shield presented on Sunday so obviously the idea is for it be ongoing, and it would be good to bring Canberra into it and build a rapport with another association."
Albury took a 3-2 lead after they hosted the first round of fixtures, before Wagga's open women leveled the overall tally on Sunday after under-15 and under-18 boys and girls results were split.
