About Softball


Softball is a bat-and-ball sport played between two teams of 10 players. It is a direct descendant of baseball although there are some key differences: softballs are larger than baseballs, and the pitches are thrown underhand rather than overhand. Softball is played on a smaller diamond than in baseball. 
Whether you've played Softball before or not, we'd love to have you as part of our team! Find out more about us on this page.
We are a Team Leicester club set up to provide students with the opportunity to learn, improve, and have fun whilst playing recreational and competitive Softball matches inter house and against other academic institutions. Find out more about Softball at our video below!
