By British Baseball Federation

The South London Pirates Baseball Club has announced its 2016 winter training schedule, with sessions to be held indoors at the world-famous Crystal Palace National Sports Centre.

Five training sessions have been scheduled to help returning veterans regain their form and new players to show their skills in preparation for the 2016 regular season, which will begin in April.  

During these sessions, club coaches will cover baseball fundamentals – hitting, fielding and throwing – as well as providing more advanced sessions focused on game tactics. Crystal Palace’s Indoor Dome is more than 100 yards long and offers an ideal venue to refine baseball skills during the British winter.


Training will be held from 1.00-3.00 pm on the following Sundays in 2016:

  • 31 January
  • 7 February
  • 21 February
  • 28 February
  • 13 March 

The cost for each session will be £8 per player, with discounted rates available for students.

The Crystal Palace National Sports Centre is located inside Crystal Palace Park and is well connected by public transport, being a short walk from two London Overground stations (Crystal Palace or Penge West) and also easily accessible via various bus routes. 

The full venue address is:

Crystal Palace National Sports Centre
Ledrington Road
London SE19 2BB


As always, the club will welcome new players of all skill levels, and can provide spare equipment for any player that needs it.
