Kimale Evans president of the Bermuda Netball Association has informed her members of the following.
“Please be advised yesterday June 27th we experienced another incident of which a car's back window was completely shattered by a softball. Not only was there damage to a vehicle, but also people narrowly missed being struck by several softballs that were hit over the fence, onto the netball courts and the surrounding areas.
This has been an ongoing problem for years despite the efforts of reaching out to the Softball Association and Youth Sport & Recreation (YS&R) regarding this major health and safety risk.
As we continue to do our best to protect our members, your children and your property, we ask that for the remainder of the BNA Summer League ALL vehicles be parked on the western side of Bernard's Park and that you remain vigilant before, during and after the matches, as there is a high probability that softballs will be hit over the fence and onto surrounding areas.
Should you choose to park on the eastern side of Bernard's Park, please note you are parking at your own risk as YS&R will not be liable for any damages resulting from sporting activities.”
