The first indoor baseball and softball centre in Europe, The 108, has opened in Barnet.

The centre has four batting cages which have been provided by the popular American baseball game centre HitTrax, two throwing lanes,  a full-size adult infield and a sports bar and restaurant. The batting cages have a technology feature that allows players to see how far they can ‘hit’ a ball in a Stadium, capturing real time measurements such as arm strength, launch angle and distance. 

The centre is less than a five minutes’ walk from London’s newest mainline station, Brent Cross West.

Barnet councillor Ammar Naqvi, cabinet member for culture, leisure, arts & sports, said:  “We are delighted to officially open this unique, world-class baseball facility in Barnet. Participation in baseball has grown in the borough over the years and The 108 will play a fundamental role in supporting both local and UK talent in this sport. It also provides an exciting, fun place for local residents to meet and new ways for people to get active. All made possible by the Brent Cross Town development and the dedication of the teams behind The 108.”

The 108 is open from 4pm to 9pm on weekdays and from 9am to 10pm on weekends. Batting sessions prices start from £16. For more information and to book your slot, visit the108.co.uk.
