Wheelchair Softball Fields

From the beginning of wheelchair softball in 1976, practices, games, and tournaments were played on asphalt and concrete parking lots in the NWSA team's local communities.  In 1996 the first dedicated field for wheelchair softball was built by the City of Pasadena at the Verne Cox Center in Pasadena, TX.

Since that time many additional cities have seen the positive benefits of having dedicated wheelchair softball fields in their community.  These fields are built using specifications designed by NWSA  and cost generally over $400,000.  Concrete, asphalt, or other hard surfaces are preferred in wheelchair softball to maximize the performance abilities of the players. Rubberized surfaces and other soft surfaces like those used on Miracle League fields can work for a team to practice on, but the smaller dimensions of those fields and the soft surfaces are not preferred by NWSA Wheelchair softball teams.  Dedicated wheelchair softball fields are used by a local adult and junior wheelchair softball teams for practices and tournaments, but also support in a multi-purpose way for many additional outdoor adaptive sports activities including Miracle Leagues.

Although many dedicated wheelchair softball fields have been built in the last 25 years, new teams and several current teams still use parking lots in their communities for practices and tournaments.  Temporary fencing and white duct tape can easily convert a parking lot into a wheelchair softball field ready for tournament play!  The Wheelchair Softball World Series is always held in the parking lots of sporting arenas or shopping malls.

Kenny Krieger Field was the first dedicated junior wheelchair softball field was built in Baltimore, MD for use by the Bennett Blazers junior wheelchair softball team.  Junior teams use a field with slightly smaller dimensions than adult fields, but still, use hard surfaces for play.
