Join us for a FREE taster session and see if Softball is for you! Although we’re sure you will love it, there is no obligation to sign up if you decide it’s not for you. The fun and friendly sessions are a perfect chance for players who have never played Softball before.

Players of all sporting abilities and Softball experience levels (Slow Pitch, Fast Pitch, Baseball, Rounders, etc) including complete Softball beginners are welcome!

Softball is a great way to improve your fitness but there is no need to be super fit to start playing.  The taster sessions are a gentle introduction to the game and suitable for all levels of fitness.

*while our club is co-ed, current taster sessions are for ladies only. Men are welcome to join us for training.

We ask all participants in the taster session to arrive 10 minutes before it starts. We recommend wearing clothing and footwear comfortable to run around in. We will provide the rest of the equipment, but you are welcome to bring your own. Each taster session will start with an introduction, a briefing on the basic rules and skills of the game, followed by some fun practice drills. This progression will lead into a game and participants having an opportunity to play their first game of Softball!

  All sessions will be run by several experienced, friendly and welcoming Blue Sox members, who will be able to answer any questions that you may have. After the session, we will head over to the pub for a friendly social.

Softball is a very social game and this gives you a chance to make a heap of new friends as well as a chance to enjoy the full Softball experience!


Softball is a fast-growing sport in the UK. It’s a bit like Rounders and a lot like Baseball – only the ball is larger and pitched underhand to the batter.
