Social 7s

What is Social 7s?

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

  • 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
