Precious Selomane, the public relations manager of the newly established Bojanala Softball League, says he hopes the league's success will convince Softball South Africa to recognise and accept it into its official fold.
The league has been operating for about six months, and has made tremendous strides in Tshwane and the North West province. But the national governing body, SSA, is yet to recognise them.
"We have been growing in leaps and bounds. For instance, two new clubs have joined us recently. One team, Ekangala softball team, travelled from Mpumalanga to play in Mamelodi on Saturday," Selomane said.
"We also have a club from North West, Sprincos, who have men and women's teams."
Selomane said Sprincos and Ekangala thrilled the spectators despite suffering heavy defeats.
Bojanala will meet the executive committee of SSA on February 24 to apply for recognition as an independent province.
SSA president Guillo Marapyane confirmed the meeting and said the association had encouraged the formulation of provincial structures.
"But we urge people to recognise the country's demographic boundaries. We will consider the application in our next council meeting, and will make a decision on the league's future then," Marapyane said.
