Softball Club

Softball is a fast paced, exciting game. If you want fun and to learn a new sport, we’re the club for you.

The University of Portsmouth Softball Club is a friendly, social and welcoming club. The club was founded in 1998 and since then we've welcomed players from all skill groups and abilities and made friends for life. With both recreational and competitive opportunities available all year round, there is always a place in the team for you.

Softball is a fast paced, exciting game similar to baseball, but played with a bigger ball. It makes it easier to knock it out of the park. If you want fun and to learn a new sport, we’re the club for you.
