THE 10th Summer Grand Slam of the Amateur Softball Association of the Philippines (Asaphil) presented by Cebuana Lhuillier will take place April 24 at the Batangas Sports Complex in Batangas City.

Close to 50 teams will see action in the open and club divisions for both men and women, the most in the decade-long history of the competition, with international teams from Indonesia and Malaysia also joining in the open class.

“I am very excited with this year’s Summer Grand Slam,” Asaphil president Jean Henri Lhuillier said.

“Aside from commemorating a decade of witnessing great skills and talents in softball, we’re also celebrating the growing number of our participants year by year. With this year’s lineup, I am sure we’re about to witness the best softball tournament in the country,” he added

Women’s open champion Adamson, which recently won the UAAP title for the sixth straight time, is joining the tournament. Other notable teams seeing action are Philippine Air Force in the men’s open, University of the Philippines in the women’s club, and the San Antonio Bobcats in the men’s club.

The tournament hosted by the province of Batangas led by Governor Vilma Santos-Recto and vice governor Mark Leviste, will run until May 30.
