As Christmas and the New Year fast approaches we thought it would be good to look back at 2015 in 12 posts every other day until Christmas eve. 2015 has been a great year the club. both on and off the field, lots to celebrate and remember on these cold dark nights.
It seems so long ago now, but the year began back in cold, dark January at Cox Green School with two games in the Windsor Indoor League. That first week on January 21st started well for the Royals, they achieved something they hadn’t done in the past three Indoor League seasons, they won their first two games. A 33-19 win over Bracknell Scorchers and then a 25-1 win over RG Blue Sox put then second in the league. Only RP’s run difference prevented the Royals from topping the league for the first time ever. In the end the indoor league was a case of “what might have been” for the Royals, while they did win their last 3 games, it was a run of 1 win in 5 games in the middle of the season, that ultimately cost them any chance of winning the league. Surprise defeats to RG Blue Sox and then Bracknell Scorchers in week 7, when both teams where still just coming to terms with the indoor format, put the league out of their hands. In the final weeks of the season the Royals did claim the scalps of both RP Hawks and BA Flyers, both who finished above the Royals, so ending the league the way they had started.
The league did allow the Royals to introduce, Lee, Kai, Claire to the club. All 3 made their debuts during the season and would go on to have very good seasons all around. The Royals also continued their trend of playing their under-18s. 3 of the squad of 9 were under-18 and all played their part in making it a good start the 2015.

What is Softball?
Co-ed SlowPitch softball is a social and enjoyable game that’s easy to learn and play, even for people who are not “athletes” or don’t have much experience of team sports.
Softball is a lot like baseball in terms of the rules, but because the ball is pitched slowly to each batter (as the name implies!), it’s easy to hit the ball and succeed at the sport’s central skill. The fact that men and women play together in the same team and on an equal level gives the sport a social buzz, and most softball games are followed by sessions at the local pub!

All sessions are free, no experience needed and all equipment to get you going is supplied.
