Tuggeranong Vikings Baseball Club

The Tuggeranong Vikings Baseball Club has been affiliated with the Tuggeranong Rugby Union and Amateur Sports Club Inc. since 1978. Our home ground is at Viking Park, Amsinck Place, Wanniassa.

Volunteers, who give their time, skills and effort, run our Baseball Club to ensure our club thrives into the future. We cannot run successfully without your support and assistance. Please consider contributing to your team as a Coach, Scorer, Umpire or Manager, or to the Club as a Committee member, Canteen staff, Fundraising member or Ground Maintenance.

Our Club has had a great deal of success on the field since our inception, our seniors have won eight A-grade finals, including 7 in a row which is a record in ACT Baseball, along with numerous premierships in Women’s, B, C and D grades. We have also had strong representation within our junior grades with the finals and premierships over the same period.

We provide a summer sport to the Canberra community, we are an inclusive sport for all ages, abilities and skill levels, and there are no insurmountable barriers to the game of baseball.

We offer a highly competitive competition in our 1st grade senior team down to a more social game, however still competitive, for our 5th grade players. All junior competitions are mixed and designed to develop players and can be an entry point for any new player no matter what age.

The U’7s is specifically designed for young kids and has a focus on participation, enjoyment and teaching essential baseball skills. Teams will be involved in finals once they reach the U13’s. Our U9’s use machine pitches whilst our U11 – U17 will use player pitch.

Once our juniors reach the senior grades they are graded into a team that suits their skill level as well as their desire to play competitively or more social. Our club currently has 111 players and fields’ junior teams from U7’s to U17’s, a women’s team and seniors comprising 1st to 5th grades.
