About Social 7s

Social 7s is Softball Australia’s new slowpitch version of softball that is fast, fun and easy to play, with 7 players on each team.

Seven reasons to play

  • Get fit: there’s plenty of action to keep everyone involved throughout the entire game.
  • Play in a relaxed, social atmosphere: emphasis is on having fun!
  • You don’t need to be skilful to play: a game for all abilities.
  • You can register as an individual: don’t have a team, we’ll find one for you. Social 7s is a great way to meet new people.
  • Play with family, friends and work colleagues: get your team of seven together and start playing.
  • Easy to learn: simplified rules means you’ll be playing like an expert in no time.
  • Short duration: games are completed in under an hour, fitting into your busy life.


Features that make Social 7s a fast, fun and easy game include

  • Teams only require seven players
  • 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
