ALWAYS EXCLUSIVE HIRE
We have just the one cage at our Southampton venue and this means that you won’t be sharing the cage with any other groups.
Enjoy the batting cage with just you and your group.
We’ve introduced additional cleaning procedures in-between sessions in order to ensure that all equipment and furniture are adequately sanitised.
We also regularly utilise Safe2Stay® sanitation fog within the venue.
You have one job. Step into that cage and smash that ball as hard as you can!
The ball is thrown towards you from our pitching machine and you simply have to hit the ball as best you can! Our system does the rest…
Suitable for ages 10+
No Protective Equipment Required
Easy to learn and enjoy!
The Technology & Game
The same technology used by professional MLB players (although we don’t take it as seriously)!
The super-smart technology tracks the trajectory of the ball after it leaves the bat. It measures velocity, launch angle and a whole host of other metrics.
Your hit is then shown on the big-screens so you can see where the ball would have gone in a real baseball stadium.
Depending on what game is being played you can either score points or play a real game where you can be caught out by the fielders!
