2017-Schedule

Please ensure all players are aware of their game times and the rules prior to the start of the game.

If you have the 7:30 Friday night game, please be there by 7:00 to start early (if possible) to avoid the darkness from creeping up on us (the South diamond isn't lit!). 

If darkness is an issue on the south diamond, the game will be suspended and completed on the North diamond once that game is complete.

ALL TEAMS PLAY ON SUNDAY!!!

What is the Heart?

Started in 1993 by Beth Ambrose and Beth Ferguson and a few of their friends, this tournament used to be played in conjunction with the Men’s Pride of Unionville on the same diamond.

As popularity of the tournament grew, it was moved to it’s own venue at Victoria Square in 1994 and has remained there ever since.
