New players: Since the Manchester Indoor Softball League was established din 2015, over 150 new players have been introduced to Softball. Indoor softball is an easy and accessible way to learn the game in preparation for the outdoor softball season. Everyone is welcome!
What is Indoor Softball?
Indoor Softball is played by two teams of eight players as a variation of slowpitch softball in a contained court with a pitcher pitching an underarm delivery to a batter. However, unlike normal slowpitch softball, the aim of Indoor is to score points for the number of bases a batter reaches, while teams lose points when batters are out. This means that in some cases, a team can actually get a negative or minus score.
There is no standard rulebook for Indoor — the game usually evolves to fit the site or the requirements of particular players. Indoor softball is normally two innings long and innings are not defined by the number of outs but instead are played against the clock. As a starting point, you can download our Guide to Indoor Softball as a reference for playing the game.
