About Pink Turf

Pink Turf is an adult, non-profit recreational soccer league founded in 1985 as a safe space for gay women. Today, we welcome members from across the 2SLGBTQ+ spectrum including Indigenous two-spirit people and intersex people. PTSL understands trans to be an inclusive term which includes trans men, trans women and non-binary folks (including genderqueer and genderfluid people).

Our Herstory

The Pink Turf Soccer League (PTSL) is the longest running Canadian soccer league for lesbian, bisexual, trans and queer positive women. Our league began in 1985 with four teams and has grown over the years to include 250 members of diverse age, race, experience and athletic ability. We are a not-for-profit league and are run by a volunteer collective that’s dedicated to continuing the traditions of the PTSL and welcoming new 2SLGBTQ+ women, intersex people, Indigenous two-spirit people and trans folk every year. We have been playing at Withrow Park in Toronto’s East End for 34 years!
