Softball Taster Session 10 April 2022

Welcome to Oxford Softball

To register for the Free Taster Session on Sunday 10 April from 1.30 to 3pm at Horspath Sports Ground (OX4 2RR), please complete the form below.

What to Expect

The Free Taster Session is open to anyone who wants to give softball a try, or has played previously (possibly a long time ago), and wants to get involved in the league this summer.

We do not expect any previous experience and all equipment is provided. The session will be a fun introduction to some of the basic skills and rules of the game and is suitable for all levels of fitness and general sporting ability.

Softball is a very social sport and is a great way to meet new people – the taster session will offer the chance to get to know your fellow rookies as well as some current league players and committee members.

The session will be held outdoors on a grass field so sportswear and trainers (or football boots) are advisable – layers are always a good idea! Please also bring some water.

The onsite clubhouse should be available for refreshments following the session.

About the Oxford Softball League

Softball is a very similar game to baseball, with a few rule changes to make it a more involved game. Softball is co-ed with an equal number of male and female players on a team.

There is no such thing as a ‘typical’ softball player – players in our league range in experience (from complete beginners to those that play at the highest national level), age (from 14 to 60+), fitness levels and nationality.

However, being co-ed makes us extremely sociable – you will find most players in the onsite bar after games, there are social events throughout the year and some even play weekend tournaments together.

The league is comprised of 9 teams with league games taking place on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at Horspath Sports Ground.  We are always on the look out for new players so please share this page with anyone who you think might like to give it a go!
