5 Fantastic Reasons to Join the Hull Scorpions

If you’ve heard about the Hull Scorpions, but you need a good reason to sign up?

Here’s five reasons that are sure to convince you.

Between meeting new people, keeping in shape and furthering your skillset, and keeping yourself in shape while enjoying the amazing springtime weather, adult softball leagues have plenty to offer.

#1 – Rediscover Your Love for Sports
Whether you were a star on the football pitch as a youngster, or a boss at rounders in secondary school, almost everyone can think back to a time when they absolutely loved participating in sports. Baseball and softball offers you the opportunity to rediscover your passion. With the first game, that passion you once felt for working as a team will come back full force and you will never want to see the season end.

#2 – Hone Your Communication Skills
Communication (and teamwork in general) is crucial to your team’s success. Without talking to one another about strategies, and without calling out “I’ve got it!” when there’s a pop fly in left field, winning the game – or even competing – is difficult. By playing, you can start to hone your communication and teamwork skills. This will serve you well not only in sports, but also in relationships and at work.

#3 – Get a Good Workout
Everyone needs to exercise to stay healthy, but going to the gym, jogging, or even going to fitness class can start to feel mundane over time. With baseball and softball, every single session and game offers something different. There are new opponents with different skills and new ways for you to challenge yourself. No two workouts will ever be the same again, and rather than count reps or miles, you can count innings and runs scored. 

#4 – Learn Something New
While it’s true that people who have played softball or baseball in the past will have a slight advantage over those who have not, it’s an easy game to learn but a difficult one to master. Even if you have never played or seen a game, you can join the team and commit to learning something new. Our experienced players will always be happy to talk you through a play and give tips on how better to hone your skills. Once you start playing, you aren’t likely to want to stop.

#5 – Meet New People

Been a grown up and making new friends can be hard for many people. And being an adult in general can be tough. Between family, work and personal issues, it can sometimes feel impossible to find time to make and build new friendships. Joining a team is a great way to do this and here at Hull Scorpions you will be welcomed into the fold and made to feel like one of the team the second you step foot onto the ground!
