2009 Nettuno, Italy

The tournament was held in Nettuno, a popular seaside town about 1 hour from Rome. The team stopped in Japan for 4 days on the way to Italy. Whilst in Japan we played several practice games against local teams and the players had home stays for 2 days. We took in a day tour to the 5th station of Mt. Fuji and a cruise on a lake. We also got to see a Japanese Pro League game at Shinju Stadium where the local Yakult Swallows fans are known for their enthusiasm.

On arrival in Italy we spent 2 days sightseeing in Rome before heading to Nettuno.
