Softball is a popular variant of baseball played all over the world. Whilst the fundamentals of softball are the same as those of baseball, the length of game and field size are dramatically smaller allowing it to be played over a shorter period of time and in smaller parks and open spaces.
With teams of up to 10 players, unlike in baseball, the ‘pitch’ is all underarm opening up the participation to many more players to come and have a go whether they have previous experience or not.

Also, a big thank you to the guys on Sunday, the feedback was faultless.Charlie, Corporate Event Organiser, Hertfordshire
Just a short note to thank you (and Joe) for your efforts on Sunday. Joe was an absolute star. The presentation of the equipment was immaculate including the set up. The children (and a few adults!) loved the activities and we will without doubt be using your services again. A truly professional job, executed perfectly.Scott Cheesman, Corporate Family Funday, Kent
