Travelodge Blacktown Sydney's Softball Suite Is In A League Of Its Own

SYDNEY: In a nod to history-making, ground-shaking moments in Olympic history and softball fans can now book an overnight hotel stay in an exclusive softball-themed suite in Sydney’s sports-mad western suburbs.

Travelodge Hotel Blacktown Sydney, located in the heartland of NSW softball, and within striking distance of the Blacktown Sportspark Stadium, has launched a Softball Suite so ultimate fans and sports-mad guests can immerse themselves in all elements of the game and get behind the Travelodge Aussie Spirit in the lead up to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Qualifiers.  

The Softball Suite is available for a limited time only between 31 August and 7 September and features team memorabilia including bats, balls, mitts and framed images of game-changing moments. And, if the mood takes them during their stay, guests can head down to Blacktown International Sportspark Stadium and maybe catch the Softball Australia squad hard in training for the upcoming Olympics.

TFE Hotel’s Chief Operating Officer, Chris Sedgwick, said the Aussie Spirit had a proud Olympic history, having medalled at every Olympic Games where softball has been part of competition, and their TFE family was proud to support them on their quest for Olympic gold.

“This is not only an exciting time for women’s softball, but also for Australian sport, and we look forward to seeing these exceptional athletes in action as they do their country proud on the world’s stage,” he said. 

Sedgwick said the Travelodge Softball Suite had been created with super fans in mind, but also with the comforts and conveniences that are hallmarks of the Travelodge Hotels brand.

“When it comes to themed rooms, the Softball Suite really is in a league of its own,” he said. “So, we’re encouraging sports fans and softball super fans to show a little Aussie Spirit and head to the Travelodge Blacktown Sydney this spring to throw their support behind the team.”
