Frequently Asked Questions
Is there parking at the school? Yes! Parking is available within the school grounds free of charge.
Is there any public transport nearby? The closest bus route is #9 run by NX Coventry. You can see more about the venue here.

Do I need any special equipment? No! Everything you need will be provided. If you happen to have your own softball/baseball glove or bat then feel free to bring that along.
What happens if it rains? Generally - rain does not stop play. In some circumstances the club committee may decide that sessions cannot continue in line with our promise to provide a safe environment for our players.
I'm under 18, can I still participate? Yes. Sessions are open to players 14+. All under 18 players will require an additional permission form to be submitted from their parent/guarding/responsible adult. A copy of the clubs youth policy can be provided upon request.

Is it completely free? Yes! 100%!
What happens at the end of the 4 weeks? This will be the end of our bespoke women & non-binary sessions. We'd love for you to continue playing with us in our main mixed sessions where you will be welcomed with open arms! Note charges will apply to continue playing beyond the 4 weeks.
Unsure whether slowpitch softball is for you? Here are some of the benefits of playing our awesome sport:
Slowpitch softball is a great way to get exercise, have fun, and make friends. It is a relatively low-impact sport, making it a good choice for people of all ages and fitness levels.
Improved physical fitness: Softball is a great way to get exercise. It involves running, throwing, and swinging, which all work different muscle groups. Playing softball can help you lose weight, improve your cardiovascular health, and build muscle strength.
Reduced stress: Playing softball can be a great way to relieve stress. The physical activity helps to release endorphins, which have mood-boosting effects. Additionally, the social aspect of softball can help to reduce stress by providing a sense of community and belonging.
Increased self-esteem: Playing softball can help to increase self-esteem. As you improve your skills and become more confident on the field, you will also start to feel more confident in yourself overall.
Made new friends: Playing softball is a great way to meet new people and make friends. You will get to know your teammates and opponents, and you may even make friends with people from other teams.
Have fun: Playing softball is simply a lot of fun. It is a great way to get exercise, spend time with friends, and enjoy the outdoors.
