The Bristol Badgers played their first games when the Club was established in 2008, followed shortly by the Bristol Bats who started as an independent development squad in 2009.  The Bats have come a long way, however, as they are now on equal footing with the Badgers as league competitors!

Both teams play in the South West Baseball League, SWBL, against teams from Taunton, Exeter, Newton Abbot and Plymouth.  With each year it seems a new team joins the league, so who knows who we’ll play next season!
