For Summer 2022, we’ll have 14-teams and 2 weeks to play our playoffs, so we are able to play three end-of-season tournaments.

  • The 1st – 8th place teams advance to a single elimination tournament to decide the Championship winner.
  • The 9th – 12th place teams advance to a single elimination tournament to decide the Consolation winner.
  • The 13th and 14th place teams will play a single game against each other to end the season.

To win the title of Durham Softball Champion, your team will need to finish in the Top 8 of 14 during the regular season and win three consecutive games in the playoffs. The teams that finish between 9th and 14th place will have a post-season format of their own, with the same amount of donation prize money on the line each game as the Championship bracket. While these teams are out of the running for the Championship, they can still earn $50 per game for their team’s sponsor charity, plus $100 for taking the Consolation title.

Below is the anticipated schedule for the playoffs, but this may be subject to change based on field availability and weather as we get closer to the date.

April 8 Softball Games are POSTPONED due to Rain

Unfortunately, we are forced to postpone this week’s co-ed adult slow pitch softball games due to the field conditions. The outfield is soaked and there are several lakes around the field, so there was no chance of drying by noon today. We’ll hope for better luck this week and reschedule Durham Softball’s Opening Day for Sunday, April 15. These softball games will be rescheduled and played later in the season at our home softball fields at 223 E. Institute Dr, Durham, NC, 27703.

The weather looks more promising this week, so hopefully we can play ball soon!
