Manning enjoys a very active minor ball program as well as adult mixed slow-pitch. A committee was formed to plan the construction of four new ball diamonds in the NW area of Town. These diamonds were officially completed in June 2009 thanks to endless volunteer hours from the community as well as municipal and grant funding. They are located north of7th Avenue NW. The older diamond at the Ag Grounds east of Town also continues to be used.
The Town of Manning is a proud partner for the 2010 Alberta Summer Games and will be hosting the softball events this summer!
