About Clifton Softball League

Since starting in the early 1990s Clifton Softball League has developed into 12 mixed sex teams with players of all abilities from a variety of backgrounds.

We use gloves, regulation bats and balls, but don’t have marked pitches or umpires in blue uniforms and caps. For us softball is about relaxing after work and hitting things yet being competitive in a fun sense. It’s a great way for sport and social lives to mix with around 250 players spread across the teams.

Softball invariably leads us to the Kings Arms for food and drinks. It’s not just a rule it’s the law! We also organise a number of major socials through the season, the annual fancy dress party being an absolutely spectacular must.

We have very limited space for new teams but individual players can be slotted in fairly easily. You can be taught the basics before the start of the season as we do our best to help everyone enjoy themselves.
