The London Tournament
This June, Roundshaw Playing Fields will once again play host to a spectacular selection of teams from across the country as 2023 sees the welcome return of one of the highlights of the British baseball calendar, the London Tournament.
Back after a temporary break, the historic open-invitation tournament will pit entrants against each other in two separate knock-out brackets - one featuring teams from Britain's elite National Baseball League and Triple-A divisions, and the other with exceptional Double-A and Single-A talent - with games taking place over two days on Roundshaw's dedicated baseball fields.
This stacked celebration of baseball will also include a Home Run Derby with prizes to be won, a youth-league mini tournament, food, beer, and music, as well as an open-air Ballpark Cinema after night falls, not to mention the crowning of each brackets' respective champion. A campsite will be available for overnight campers remaining onsite between the two days.
For those wishing to participate, teams are invited to fill out an application no later than April 2023. The cost for competing is £175 for one team, or £300 for two teams. This event is made possible by the Croydon Pirates with assistance from the BBF, Sutton County Council, Donnelly Financial Advice, Comet Sports, T-Rex T-Ball, and AV Entertainment.
