The Vintage Softball Club of Santa Clara County, a California not for profit corporation, was founded in 1987 for men and women 50 years and older to play slow pitch softball. With over 200 active members, we offer both weekend and weekday leagues that enable players of all skill levels- some players are novices, most are intermediate and a few are actually in the Senior Softball Hall of Fame- to participate in organized softball as many as 5 days a week, 52 weeks a year. To play, all you need is a bat, glove and payment of a nominal annual membership fee.
For 2023, Vintage dues will be increasing in 2023, as we have been hit with the same price increases as just about everything else- field costs, balls, insurance, equipment, etc have all increased.

PG&E CARE Program
Here is some information for Vintage members regarding a free program through PG&E called the CARE Program. Under the program, at no cost to you if you are an eligible participant, a representative comes to your home, does an evaluation of how your home could be more energy efficient, and then sends a contracted company out to do work related to installing implementing those efficiencies - again at no cost to eligible participants. It could be insulation, weatherstripping, light bulbs , thermostat or other items that makes a home more energy efficient. Added to that, PG&E may lower your monthly payment for one year with the option of extending the cost savings. This information comes from friends who have already taken advantage of the program.
Contact information: Sal at (831) 854-8111.
As per the county requirement, we have submitted our social distancing protocol to the county. A copy is available below.
You may have noticed a photographer taking pictures during our Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday games. Lisa Unruh has kindly been snapping action (or not) shots of many of us, highlights of which are shown at the bottom of this page. She has set up an album that anyone can access, so you can see and print out your own pics at https://vintagesoftballsc.shutterfly.com. You'll need to sign up for a Shutterfly account if you don't have one. Thanks Lisa!
