Training space available

Former WNY Sting training facility is now under new managment.
 
The name of the facility is now WNY Fastpitch.

The facility is 9,000 square feet and currently has a 60x60 field and 3 batting cages. Over the coming months, we're investing a significant amount of money to make the field 60x75 (with new turf) and adding 2 more batting cages over the next few months.

The facility is located at 4025 Walden Avenue. Although the website is not complete yet (the cage scheduler is not complete), pricing and information is accurate.  

www.WNYFPA.com is the web site.

We're holding an open house for teams to come and see the facility on November 19th from 10a-2p. I've attached a flyer with the information.
