Physical Distance with Suds, Buds & Windmills, the team you know and love has no off-season. We understand that this is a difficult time. While we wait to play sports, especially softball in Ottawa we have to stay away from one another and follow the recommendations of Ottawa Public Health which is Physical Distancing during this pandemic.
