To all our league members,

As you are aware there have been some announcements made by the provincial and municipal governments surrounding restrictions to protect you and encourage everyone’s safety. Some of these measures include closing of public spaces, such as parks and sports fields. All of these restrictions have been implemented to encourage physical and social distancing to reduce the communication of COVID-19.

As a recreational league we are tied to a requirement to obtain permits to use these public spaces and softball fields. Currently, all public spaces of this nature are closed and we cannot obtain permits to play from the town. They recently released a policy statement closing sports fields in New Tecumseth until Sept 7.

Based on these current restrictions and limitations, the 2020 Tottenham Oldtimers Slo-Pitch season is cancelled. If there are any changes to this policy and restrictions are lifted, we will revisit this and let you know. The town has stated that they will revisit their policy decision if conditions improve and provincial direction changes, but we see this as a slim hope.

Refunds for players who paid for their 2020 season or sponsorship are available at your request. Please contact us at and the executive team will issue refund(s) by cheque. If you wish to leave your payment in place for next season, let us know. If you paid by cheque fairly recently, Rob has not deposited your cheque yet and will destroy it.

If conditions and public health direction allow for some late season activity, we will try to set up some fun tournament events and will reach out to all registered players to gauge their interest in participating at that time. If you have any additional questions or comments, please reach out to any executive team member and we will do our best to assist you.

Thank you again for your understanding and patience as we certainly do not enjoy sharing this news with you. While unfortunate, we believe that this decision is in the best interest of all our league members and their families during this uncertain time.

Best Regards,

TOT Executive
