What is softball? Softball is a social and enjoyable sport 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 offers particular opportunities for women.
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!
Getting Involved MSC runs weekly sessions on Friday evenings for anyone wishing to give the sport a go. The sessions vary in location and time depending on the season. During the Autumn and Winter it's at Newlands Girls School from 6pm, during Spring and Summer sessions run from 6:30pm at North Maidenhead Cricket Club.
