The event promotes participation and enjoyment for all and is open to players and teams of all abilities with games set to be at various venues all around the Canberra region as well as an opening and closing ceremony at Manuka Oval.

Make sure you stick around to see some of the world's best including Australian captain Meg Lanning.
