Maple Cup Challenge
Cheer on the Canadian Club of NZ as we take on the American Club in The Maple Cup Challenge, a slowpitch softball game played annually since 1986 between the American Club and the Canadian Club.
In 2020 the Canadian Club was victorious and we are keen to hold onto the Maple Cup Trophy!
A team of Canucks has been formed and are keen to regain the Maple Cup Challenge title, however, we need enthusiastic supporters, so, please come along and cheer on our team.
Wear red & white for Canadian colours, bring some $ for the BBQ & soft drinks afterwards, plus don’t forget to bring a great attitude and a big voice.
