Greater Vancouver Adult Softball Leagues
If you are interested in joining an adult softball league, here is a list of league organizers in Greater Vancouver.

“The VRSL offers a style of ball designed for fun, healthy competition and opportunities for adults to get outside!
We offer two brands of softball: 4-Pitch where each batter receives max. 4 pitches from their own pitcher and Mat-ball is more like regular softball where the pitcher is a defensive position. Strikes are called when the pitch goes through the batters’ strike zone and hits a mat placed behind home plate.”
