Social softball describes any form of softball where the social aspects of the game are promoted more so than the competitive aspects. That is not to say that social softball competitions can’t be played, but when they are, the general atmosphere of the games are relaxed and friendly. Often, the rules of the game are modified to enhance the social aspects.
Slowpitch softball, where the ball is pitched on an arc – leading to a game with more hits and less pitcher domination – is often played in a social environment. Slowpitch softball is the most popular form of softball in the US and Canada, with millions of participants. This form of the game is not widely played in Australia, however is growing in popularity.
Softball Australia’s modified version of the game, Social 7s, is slowpitch with a number of rules designed to enhance the social aspects and create a game that is fast, fun and easy to play.
Some of the features of Social 7s include:
- 7-a-side social mixed softball
- Every player bats each inning
- A new pitcher each inning
- Every base gained is worth a run
- Short duration- simplified rules
- Ball is pitched slower, more hits
