Softball (like Baseball) Basel Area
 
Hi everyone.

I manage/coach a softball team here in the Basel area. I would like to add a few players to the team. I am looking for adult men or women who would like to play. During the winter, we practice indoors on Tuesdays, 18:15-20:00 in the Bruderholz. During the spring/summer, we practice outdoors in Allschwil on Thursdays 17:30-19:00. There are single games and tournaments that we play during the spring/summer. We are a private club and the cost is 150 francs per year (it covers the indoor and outdoor facilities, team fees for league, insurance, etc.).

I hope ther are some interested players out there!!? Please email or post here if interested, thanks!--Chris

This is slow-pitch by the way. The ball is not that difficult to hit.

This is a great social game for anyone that wants to meet people, I highly recommend it!

Do you know of any clubs around Lausanne? I play in a lot of tournaments in the UK and would be great to carry this on. Have only found the boffins at CERN so far...

I don't know of any clubs around Lausanne...they have some clubs in the Geneva area. We have 4 in this area (Dulliken, near Olten, us, Therwil and the Atomics, Neuenburg Germany). Not to say there aren't any, sometimes teams don't publicize much...we play in the Swiss Slow Pitch League of the Swiss Softball and Baseball Federation. There are a couple of Zürich clubs, us (Angels), Therwil, the Atomics And Truckstar (Dulliken) in the league.

If you move up this way, feel free to join us! :msncool:

Thanks for the info Chris. Just wanted to add to the discussion that I went to practice last night and was happy to meet part of the team. In case anyone is hesitating to join I will add English is spoken by the entire team and is also the language of coaching so there won't be any communication issues if you are new to the sport!

Hi there, for those who are not in the Basel area, here are the officially known clubs in Switzerland

http://www.swiss-baseball.ch/en/vereine/ubersicht/

Sometimes the bigger clubs know of smaller, more fun-oriented teams in their areas, so getting in touch with them will probably help.

Hello

My litle son is comming to visit me.

He is 13 years old and he loves the beisball.
In fact he plays in Italy with a club.

Any chance that he could play with your team during his stay here in Basel?

He will be between December and January and he will be excited to having the opportunity to play with a local team.

Thanks a lot for your advice
