Think you can smash a ‘homerun’? then Heatherton’s Baseball/Softball Range is the activity for you! 

The baseball option will appeal to the more adventurous adrenalin seeking individual with challenging speeds ranging from 40mph to 60mph.

For the less experienced and younger participant the softball is the perfect choice. The balls are larger and are thrown at a slower speed, giving the batsman a greater chance of striking the ball.

One of only three specialised pitching machines in Europe it is an adrenalin experience that you will never forget. The facility is computer controlled and automatically fires baseballs and also softballs. 

You will be given instructions and tips from the Heatherton staff, learning how to safely participate and enjoy the experience.

For Safety reasons this activity does not operate in wet weather or between Nov to early spring - Many other activities remain open all year
