What is softball

Co-ed slowpitch softball is a recreational, social and enjoyable game that's easy to learn and play, even for people who are not “athletes” or don't have much experience of team sports - and the game also offers female single sex teams. (OR also offers both male & female single sex teams.) to run alongside..

It's a lot like baseball in terms of the rules, but because the ball is pitched slowly to each batter (as the name implies!), it's easy to hit the ball and succeed at the sport's central skill. The fact that men and women play together in the same team and on an equal level gives the sport a social buzz, and most softball games are followed by sessions at the local pub!

BaseballSoftballUK has created a guide for Beginners, the "Beginners Guide to Softball" provides an introduction to how slowpitch softball is played.
