The British Softball Federation (BSF) is the national governing body for softball in the United Kingdom.

The vast majority of UK softball is played in the co-ed (mixed) slowpitch format but there are numerous single-sex slowpitch teams and a growing fastpitch community.

There are many regional slowpitch leagues around the country whose teams affiliate annually to the BSF through their leagues, as do fastpitch teams through the Great Britain Fastpitch League.  Tournament-only teams must also affiliate in order to take part in national league play and National Championship tournaments.  Aside from National Championships, there are a multitude of local tournaments during the summer in different parts of the country.

There is also a wide-ranging Great Britain Softball National Teams programme, which includes men's and women's senior fastpitch teams, youth fastpitch teams for women at Under-13, Under-15, Under-18 and Under-22 age levels and for men at Under-18 and Under-23 age levels as well as a National Co-ed Slowpitch Team that has won the European Co-ed Slowpitch Championship on 11 out of 12 occasions and a National Men's Slowpitch Team that won the European Championship on the only occasion it was played.  The GB Men's Fastpitch Team is currently ranked fourth in Europe and the GB Women's Fastpitch Team is ranked third in Europe and in 2019 reached the final of the Euro-Africa Qualifying Tournament for the Tokyo Olympics.
