Since 1984, the Phoenix Ball Club has been host to world class men’s fast-pitch softball: the Zeister Slot Tournament (ZST).

Each year the best (national) teams in the world come to Zeist in the Netherlands during Whitsun/Pentecost weekend (Pinksteren) to test their skills, fine tune their strategy, and get in shape for upcoming European or World Championships. For the players, the ZST also provides a chance to renew both old rivalries and long-standing friendships.

Spectators are treated with a front-row seat of fast-paced, action-packed competition. The atmosphere is warm, friendly, and inviting. The competition will be tight and fierce as ever.

The 36th edition of the Zeister Slot Tournament was a great one! With the national teams of: New Zealand, Australia, Japan, South Africa, Netherlands and Denmark we had the best line-up we can wish for. The winner of 2019 was Japan!

In 2020 there would be no Zeister Slot Tournament due to the Coronavirus. We hope to see you all in 2021 for the 37th edition, May 22, 23 and 24!

Japan, winner of the 36th edition of the Zeister Slot Tournament!
