Welcome to Durham Softball! 

Durham Softball is a charity co-ed adult softball league in Durham, NC. The league is managed by Play NC, a 501(c)3 non-profit that hosts sports and games for charity. Our league has partnered with local non-profit organizations and businesses to create a fun, competitive, and rewarding softball league. All proceeds from the league are donated to our partner charities and teams will compete during the season to earn a larger share of the donation pool for their charity. The more the team wins, the more their charity will receive! You can sign up as an individual or bring a group. Just bring a glove and have fun helping raise money for worthy local causes!

  • In our inaugural 2018 season, 227 players helped us raise $2,800 in cash donations for our sponsors.
  • In 2019, we had 492 players and $4,400 in cash donations.
  • In 2020, we had to cancel the entire season due to COVID, but still raised $6,400 for charity thanks to generous player donations!
  • In 2021, we had 387 players and raised $3,838 in cash donations.
  • In 2022, we had 461 players and raised $5,222 in cash donations.

Our league is currently partnered with a great group of diverse charity organizations in the Durham community and we hope to have even more community partners signed up soon. Thanks to all of our players and fans for your support!
