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:
