Co-ed slowpitch softball is a recreational, social and enjoyable game that's easy to learn and play, even for people who are not "athletes" or don't have much experience of team sports – and the game offers particular opportunities for women.
It's a lot like baseball in terms of the rules, but because the ball is pitched slowly to each batter (as the name implies!), it's easy to hit the ball and succeed at the sport's central skill. The fact that men and women play together in the same team and on an equal level gives the sport a social buzz.
It is more challenging than slowpitch softball, and requires more skill and game awareness, but fastpitch softball is a tremendously rewarding game and the format is growing in both quantity and quality in the UK.
