Lae softball club highlights financial hurdles

According to mentor Paul Pasen, they formed the club to give an opportunity to young family members to grow in the sport.

The Islands Salvage and Towage Manolos Softball Club is one of the top Lae teams that, according to the Softball Federation president, has over 5 national championships titles under their belt.

Just like other sporting clubs, Manolos experienced financial difficulties whilst trying to secure a men’s and women’s team for the Port Moresby championships. 

“We struggled because of financial crisis as you know, throughout the nation,” Pasen said.
