WALK the PLANK 2019


Welcome to a new Sydney Diamond Sports Carnival at a new Host Club

Quakers Hill Pirates Baseball Club will host the first WALK the PLANK Zooka Cup on

This one day carnival is a fun and active way for players new to the zooka format of our game to be introduced to the moving ball and give newly formed teams for 2019/2020 a chance to make friends and bond like pirates pirate

The carnival includes off field activities including a jumping castle and treasure hunt.  The Sydney Diamond Sports experienced staff will be on hand all day to help new Coaches and staff and all Umpires and balls will be supplied …. you just need to bring your zooka machine which will call for the day your teams “Canon”.
