Members of our friendly WI group live in and around Leigh. We operate mostly as a social group and organise theatre and cinema trips and a variety of outings to gardens and historical sites. We visit Christmas markets and take advantage of the beautiful Surrey countryside for walks, coffee mornings and alfresco lunches. The talks at our monthly meetings cover a range of topics including craft demonstrations, cookery, local history and life experiences.

If you are new to softball then the best way to described it is to say it is a cross between Rounders and Baseball but the important thing is it is a mixed game and we play for the exercise and to have fun. Our age group ranges from 15 to 69.

Soft Ball is a good way to keep fit, there is quite of bit of running/jogging involved be it when you are fielding or batting. It does not matter if you are not very good at hitting a ball or catching a ball as the emphases is on having fun.

If you have never played before then do not worry, the rules are very simple to learn and we are a very social group more interested in having fun than playing a competitive sport. Family groups of mixed age and sporting ability are very welcome.

We play on the Cricket Ground it Leigh (RH2 8NP) every Thursday evening during the summer months, weather dependant from about 18.30 till 20.00. Our local Pub, The Plough supports us by providing a snack/meal after every game for a very reasonable price. There is also a very small charge for playing each week which goes towards paying for our Insurance.
