Baseball and Softball

The University of Southampton Baseball and Softball Team welcomes both men and women to join and compete in both local and national Baseball and Softball competitions. .

About Baseball and Softball

Baseball and Softball are rapidly growing sports in the UK and will even be featured in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. We are beginner friendly club; you don’t need and experience to join our team. Many of our members are total novices but you’ll pick it up quickly with our coaching and game time opportunities.

Every year we enter the University Nationals competitions for both softball and baseball as well as play baseball and indoor softball leagues against other universities throughout the year.

Training is every Sunday 13:30-15:30pm in the Old Sports Hall and Wednesday afternoons at Wide Lane 14:00-16:00pm. All the equipment you’ll need is provided by the society including gloves and bats.

We play both baseball and softball. The softball is mixed requiring 5 men and 5 women on a team and baseball is also open to all.

The team is not just about sport, we also host weekly socials with a variety of themes and activities so there’s always something for everyone to join in on.
