There's no specific time limit for each inning in softball. Each inning lasts as long as it takes for both teams to get 3 outs. In certain leagues there can be time limits on the whole game so teams might not be able to complete the full 7 innings of a game.

-usually about an hour, depending on how good the playing teams are. if a good team run rules a bad team the game should be done fairly soon. (a half hour.)

A game is 7 innings unless you're on a time limit game which is usually the case when in tournament play. A timed game will typically be 1 hr and 15 minutes or 1 hr 30 minutes in length.
