The search to find local men and women who are interested in playing baseball in 2022 has started with Bristol Baseball Club staging two taster sessions in the New Year.
The January tasters are being held on Sunday 16th January at 12.30 at Wellsway School Sports Hall in Keynsham and on Sunday 23rd January at Badminton School Sports Hall in Bristol.
“Baseball is a great game to play and we welcome men and women to come and give it a go in the New Year,” said the club’s head coach Rhodri Theaker. “We welcome people who are inexperienced, have played softball or cricket and those who have played before and maybe new to this area.”
The sessions, which cost £5.00, will be lead by the club’s team of coaches and will cover fielding and battingas well as some of the basics of the game.
Bristol Baseball Club currently runs four adult mixed teams, a women’s team and a youth section and plays and trains at Somerdale Pavilion in Keynsham during the spring and summer.
All the clubs teams are affiliated to the British Baseball Federation, the game’s national governing body.
The club is also planning some taster sessions for under 16s later in the New Year as the club seeks to develop its youth section.
