Practice

Come along to one of our practice sessions to have a go at the awesome sport that is slowpitch softball. Your first session is free and we provide all the equipment you need…you just need to wear something you can run around in! You can either let us know by dropping us an email (eastbournebombers@gmail.com) or just turn up on the day. 


During the cold winter months, we move indoors and play at Moira House School on a Tuesday evening from 8:15pm - 9:45pm.

Excitement

We play every week from April to September in Eastbourne on our very own softball diamond. In April we train from 6:00pm – 8:00 pm and from May – September we train from 6:30pm – 8:30pm. Our practice sessions consist of a team warm up, (involving a jog around the bases followed by a stretch), throwing in pairs to warm up our arms, some drills to help make sense of the game and we always end each session with a game.

Training will always go ahead unless it’s raining heavily at our start time.

2019 will be our third season, and there couldn't be a better time for you to get involved! We will be playing weekend tournaments throughout the outdoor season across the UK. In addition, we always try to organise friendly matches with our softball friends from across London and the South East. More details for these games and tournaments can be found on our calendar and emails are sent out regularly to our members with more information.
