Newbies and long standing Ringers – please check out the softball rules on this website as there are some bits and pieces that have changed and you can't rely on the ref to always know them ;)
About Us:
The Ringers began as a regular group of friends and housemates (many of whom were windsurfers) willing to play as ringers for Beaker's law firm in the Surveyors Softball League. At times the ringers would out number the law firm players and all were very dedicated – some returning to play after catastrophic ball-on-ball injuries. Eventually though it was decided, over a pint or five, that the ringers should make their own team.

That was how we were created – we are The Ringers!

We also managed to snaffle a couple of experienced players from a retiring CSL team - the Down & Outs. Add to this some more friends of friends and we had a pretty decent size squad.

2011 was our first season and we found that the CSL uses things called rules... Luckily we can make up rules and shout them pretty darn loudly and this helped us to achieve a respectable 10th out of 12 in the league.

The biggest decision was what official looking team stash we would don. In typical Ringer fashion we opted for not an unflattering hoody or baseball-esque shirt but instead our highly distinctive fluoro pink headbands which can be seen from the other side of the suspension bridge rumor has it.

We have now adopted a flouro pink sports tshirt and have even splashed out on a super swanky bat.

2016 marked our first year in the top half of the league.

So three cheers for The Ringers… and one for the pub!
