The Belfast Sliders Softball Club was established in July 2009, initialy comprising of players completely new to the game softball following the “2009 Softball Ulster Introductory League”. The Sliders’ relative inexexperience won them the wooden spoon in their first league appearances in 2009 and 2010, but never to remain the underdog they trained hard to become league winners in 2011, 2012 and 2015. In the the summer months the Sliders train at the pitches located at the Queens University PEC on Wednesday evenings from 6pm onwards. In the pre-season the Sliders train instead on a Saturday morning from 11am, also at the Queens University PEC. Home games are played at Newforge Country Club on Monday evenings from 7pm. Leaving the softball aside, the Sliders also like to organise social events during the on- and off-season, and members are regular attenders at Softball Ulster organised events. At the present time three of our female players are on the Irish National Fast Pitch team, and the Softball Ulster Secretary is also a member of the club.
