    What we're about

    The Reading Softball Club (RG Blue Sox) is a co-ed, mixed-age team that plays in the Windsor and Maidenhead Softball League. We’re always looking for new members, so whether you’ve never heard of softball or you’ve been playing for years, we hope you’ll join us!

    Whats softball about?
    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 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!

    When and where can I Play?
    We start training from early spring on Wednesday evenings at Sol Joel Park, Earley, with league games Tuesday or Thursday's commencing early May. We also enter a number of weekend summer tournaments for those that are super keen.

    We have 2 Ladies Taster sessions coming up, all sessions will be run by several experienced, friendly and welcoming Blue Sox members. For the guys, normal training will start in April, keep an eye for the events.
