Great Britain Womens Softball

We are travelling to the World Championships in August and we need to raise funds for the tournament.

Please help Chris and Ross and the rest of the Great Britain Womens Fastpitch management team to go to the World Championships in Holland this summer.  We are all volunteering our time and appreciate any help you can give. 

We represent our country at the highest level possible and are entirely self funded. It costs £800 for each participant and we need your help in raising money for both coaches and players to attend the World Championships.

The GB Women's Fastpitch Team will be going to the ISF Women's World Championships in Holland this summer after being given a wild card entry to the tournament by the International Softball Federation.   This will be the team's fourth straight World Championship, two by qualification (2010 and 2012) and two by wild card (2006 and 2014).  

This prestigious tournament is in Europe for the first time in history, August 15-24 in Haarlem.

The million dollar question

Why would a National team ask for personal donations to the biggest tournament in the world? Our sad issue is that since softball was cut from the London 2012 Olympics, we have to fund ourselves to play the sport we love for our nation. Our team relies (survives) on generous donations from fans, friends and family.

 Your donation will help with Travel & Accommodation, Tournament Fees, Team Staff and Physio, Kit, Training Camp and all expenses needed to allow us to volunteer to help Team GB Softball.
