Softball has been played in Oxford since the early 1980's with the Oxfordshire Softball Association (OSA) founded in 1990. The Oxford Softball League plays most of its games on Tuesday nights at Oxford Sports Park, Horspath Road, Oxford.

What is softball?

Currently, the Oxford Softball League is for mixed (co-ed) slowpitch softball, although there are occasionally opportunities for ‘single sex’ and many of our players play fastpitch softball. Slowpitch softball is a social team sport, played by teams made up of 5 men and 5 women. The ball is thrown (pitched) underarm and, hopefully, hit by the batter towards the fielders on the defensive team who wear gloves on their non-throwing hand to catch the ball. Its closest comparable sport is baseball. Despite its name, the ball is hard, but larger than a baseball.
