The Angels have a great team spirit, we are a group of players with a love for the game that have all became friends.  We train on on a Tuesday and Thursday evening @6.30pm at Hydebank playing fields. Hydebank is ideal for training and we have our own baseball diamond there too. We’re always looking to recruit new members and everyone is welcome.

Smokin’ Aces

The Smokin’ Aces are one of the two teams in Belfast Softball Club, along with the Brawlers. Founded in 2007 the Smokin’ Aces were one of the original clubs in Softball Ulster. After winning the league in 2008 and 2010, the Smokin’ Aces have gone through a number of seasons of restructuring, bringing in many new players. This year’s group of new players along with the more experienced Aces make an enthusiastic bunch with a great sense of team spirit. The Aces aim to develop this potential and experience in their new team throughout the season. The Aces practice with the Brawlers on Mondays and Wednesdays at 6:30pm at Henry Jones Playing Fields, new members always welcome.
