Social 7s is Softball Australia’s new slowpitch version of softball that is fast, fun and easy to play, with seven players on each team.
- Teams only require seven players – mixed gender competition – minimum 4 females on diamond for the intervarsity competitions
- Every player bats each inning
- Ball is pitched slower, leading to more hits and fielding
- High scoring – every base gained is a run
- A new pitcher each inning
- A Strike Zone Mat is used – if the pitch lands on the mat, it is a strike
- No umpire required – a Game Coordinator is responsible for scoring and adjudicating on close plays
- Ideal for those who have never played before or haven’t played in a long time
- No pressure, play in a fun, social and relaxed environment
- Great way to meet new people
For the intervarsity competitions, all equipment is provided and it is free for universities to enter a team and for students to play!
Dates and venues for the sanctioned events are as follows:
Qld Friday 8 April South Brisbane Softball Association
NSW Friday 15 April Georges River Softball Association (TBC)
Vic Friday 22 April RMIT University, Bundoora campus
