The Ringers

Our Team

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 outnumber 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!

In 2019 our merry band was joined by some fun-loving legends from retiring team Ice Cold Pitchers.

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

Ice Cold 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. 

How to Find Us

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.
