Bat & Ball railway station
Bat & Ball railway station is located on Bat & Ball Road in Sevenoaks in Kent, England. Train services are provided by Southeastern.
The station opened in 1862.<ref name=butt208/> It was previously named Sevenoaks Bat & Ball and was renamed in 1950.<ref name=butt29/> The name derives from the Bat & Ball Inn, which no longer exists.
Bat and Ball railway station lies just to the north of Sevenoaks, Kent, on the Sevenoaks-Swanley via Otford route. There are no benches, adverts or speakers in use. It has been unstaffed since closure of the booking office on 30 November 1991 - although its staffing had been sporadic prior to that date.
Southeastern have fitted an electronic screen with the latest train times and calling points.
A PERTIS 'permit to travel' machine is located at the entrance to the southbound platform on the 'down' side. Prior to de-staffing in 1991, it had converted from the previous NCR21 card ticket system to APTIS on 12 April 1988. A rare misprint on some tickets issued just after conversion to APTIS rendered the station name as BAT BALL.
