Looking for a new exciting club to join? Enjoy playing in a team and meeting new people? Then why not try Baseball or Softball!
Welcome to the brand-new UWE Baseball & Softball Club. We are a friendly bunch of easy-going people who enjoy playing ball and having fun whilst doing so. The club invites anyone who has an interest to give it a go, regardless of age, gender or ability. Most members have never played Baseball or Softball before, so all levels of experience are welcome in the team. If you haven’t played before, don’t worry - there are always friendly faces around who are willing to help you in any way possible to ensure you have an enjoyable time.
Being a member of the club will give you the opportunity to be involved with:
- Social nights out (a variety of drinking and non-drinking socials throughout the year, such as fancy-dress bar crawls, BBQs, etc.)
- Weekly Socials - Most probably V-Shed but we shall see where the night takes us.
- Sports-themed events (Team Beer pong, etc.)
- Weekly training sessions (Sunday & Monday 6pm-8pm)
- Friendly training matches,
- Tournaments against other University teams,
- Opportunity to play in the BUBL / BUSL (British University Baseball / Softball League) competing against Universities from all over the country.
As well as being a part of a great team environment where you can socialise, meet new people and experience new opportunities

Refresher Booth - We have a Refresh Booth in the SU Bar from 11am - 1pm on the 29th January. This will allow students who were unable to join during the first semester to get involved and ask any questions they may have since we started up. The layout will be little stalls manned by our President Drew and Vice-President Kai who will be more than happy to talk about what it's like being a part of the club and why they should join.
Sports Ball - The annual sports ball is set on the 24th May. (I will add more information when it has become available to me).
Sports Tour - This year sports tour will be going to Italy on the 13th April. This is an opportunity to travel abroad and have a good time playing sports and letting your hair down. (I will add more information when it has become available to me).
If this sounds like something you might be interested in then please come and find our booth at the Freshers Fair on Friday 21st September 2018, where you can ask any questions you may have. Alternatively, you could drop us a message in our Facebook group (www.facebook.com/groups/UWEBaseballSoftball)
