Softball Tryouts

Are you an ambitious softball player who is looking for competition at the highest level?

Then you are right with us. Our Bundesliga (division 1) women team is looking for players with playing experience for the coming season. Interested? Then get in touch with us and come by for a tryout practice session. Practice times and directions to the sports gyms can be found below.

Softball Division 1

Our first women's team was founded in 1995. In just a few years, the team was able to work its way up from the regional league through the association league to the Bundesliga (Diviision 1). In 1998 the team qualified for the first time to take part in a German championship. Since the foundation of the Softball Bundesliga (1999), our team has been continuously represented in the top German league. At the state level, the team has already won the title in the cup competition of the Baden-Württemberg Baseball and Softball Association (BWBSV) several times (2005, 2009, 2011, 2012, 2014, 2015, 2017-19). At the national level, the team regularly reached the playoff round in the Bundesliga game operations of the German Baseball and Softball Association (DBV). In 2014-2019 they failed in the quarter-finals of the German Cup.
