Youth Fastpitch Softball in London
Now in its second season, we are extremely proud to offer Fastpitch Softball for girls from age 13-19. Fastpitch Softball is a fast-growing sport in the UK and the London Mets are very excited about the future of this great sport. Fastpitch Softball offers training and competitive games on Sundays. A typical Sunday includes training within our own club, followed by friendly games played between the London Mets and other local clubs.
In recent years, members of our Fastpitch programme travelled to Prague, Czech Republic to compete in an international tournament against several other European Softball Clubs. It has been a great opportunity for our girls to experience competitive softball.
Many of our girls have been invited to play for Team GB, which is exciting as Fastpitch Softball (along with Baseball) have been added back into the Olympic Games, starting in Tokyo in 2020.
The London Mets Girls Softball team has wrapped for the 2018 season, but will continuing with training sessions throughout the autumn and winter. The league is intended for girls 13 – 19 years old.
Girls are also encouraged to join the Finsbury Park Fall Ball League--a mixed-gender opportunity to improve baseball and softball skills in a fun, friendly, and progressive environment. More information can be found at www.LondonMets.org/FallBall/
Winter training will begin in early January 2019, so please watch this space for more details.
