14th April – end August – BBF South league. Games are Sunday all day (
Note: currently the Oxford Uni team are having outdoor practices and batting practices. If you’re interested in joining these as good pre-season warm ups, please let me know and I can put you in touch.
If you want to order the full Kings baseball jersey and baseball trousers, its best to order these now from Covee as they take a while to arrive.
(make sure you order the Oxford top, not the Kings top). Let me know if you’re thinking of ordering and I can send you details of the required kit. We will also be doing the usual order for game T shirts, caps, hoodies etc, which you can order from us nearer the start of the season.
The annual membership fee will be £100 again, covering league registration fee, insurance, equipment etc. University players who will only play March-June can pay a reduced fee of £75. For existing members, please pay this asap into the club account (let me know if you’ve not got the details). New members only need to pay when you’ve been to a few things and are definitely going to join the club.
The Oxford Kings covers both Oxford city/local residents and Oxford Uni members and we’re currently looking for new members. We hope to see you at the first few practices but please let us know if you have any questions in the mean time.
Oxford Kings Baseball Club was founded in 1999 by three University of Oxford postgraduate students from Keble College. The club originally represented the University of Oxford, but in 2001, the Kings became the baseball club for the City of Oxford. Since then, players from all over the world have joined the team and helped build the game within Britain.
Oxford Kings were the 2010 AAA South Division Winners and the 2010 AAA National Championship Winners. 2011 saw the Kings reach the Final Four once again, narrowly missing out on retaining the crown. 2012 promises to be another fierce year of competition in the newly re-formatted AAA South Pool A.
