Welcome to UEA Baseball & Softball!

We are the UEA Baseball & Softball Club! Our members come from diverse backgrounds, academic fields and levels of study.
We have seasoned players to first timers so whatever your level of skill, or even if you've never played before,
you'll find a place in our supportive club with lots of opportunity to grow.

We run a cohesive club that plays two different sports, but often practice and socialize together.
We are focused on building a strong feeling of team spirit and have planned lots of fun socials that will help us get to know each other better
and integrate both returners and freshers to the club. 

Ever wondered why Baseball & Softball are so popular around the world? Well, now you can ask yourself the same question over here at UEA!
You can touch base with us by swinging by our social media:

Baseball

With Baseball we welcome all players regardless of experience. We have a co-ed team that plays regular fixtures in the BUCS Midlands division across both semesters and also a mixed side in the Norfolk Baseball League. The latter typically runs from March through to June and is a shining of example of what it means to play baseball during the Spring and early Summer months.

Training:

Monday: 16:20-18:00 – INDOOR (Sportspark Hall 1)

Wednesday: 13:00-16:00 – OUTDOOR (Colney Lane)

Saturday: 13:00-16:00 – OUTDOOR (Colney Lane)

If Required: Sunday: 13:00-17:00 – OUTDOOR (Colney Lane)

Softball

For softball, we have a mixed, co-ed group that trains weekly both indoors and outdoors. In addition to organizing friendlies against local sides, we recently have joined BUCS adding more as of the 2021/22 academic year. At UK University Softball Championships we placed 4th out of 12 qualifying universities and are excited to try to match that effort again this year!

Training:

Monday: 16:20-18:00 – INDOOR (Sportspark Hall 1)

Wednesday: 13:00-16:00 – OUTDOOR (Colney Lane)

Saturday: 11:00-13:00 – OUTDOOR (Colney Lane)

Sunday: 13:00-15:00 - OUTDOOR (once a month, Womens session at Colney Lane)

 

 

We love to have to fun as much as we are have competitive teams that participate in BUCS as of October 2021!
