The global COVID-19 pandemic has created a very uncertain landscape for sports clubs across the country.

by Ipswich Basketball Club in Ipswich, England, United Kingdom

The global COVID-19 pandemic has created a very uncertain landscape for hundreds of sports teams and clubs across the country.

Like many in a similar position Ipswich Basketball Club has been negatively impacted by the current climate, in particular the running of our Senior Teams. Ipswich Basketball Club's senior men and women both compete in National League competition with the latter recently being crowed National League champions.

Due to the location of our Suffolk based club to compete at the highest level we must enter National league competition, travelling the whole country for fixtures. With the extended travel costs as well as weekly training costs to cover facility hire, equipment and kit, fundraising and sponsorship is an essential tool for ensuring Ipswich Basketball can enter teams and compete on a yearly basis.

Another dynamic is our Senior teams are an outlet for our most promising young players, with many of our U18 players making their debuts in senior National League before they move on to both USA and UK universities to better their basketball and education. Experience in the senior leagues is an essential element of their basketball development.

Regular fundraisers and home game support is our main source of financial support during the season, which was not only cut short at the end of the 2019/2020 season, but is looking like it will be significantly impacted for the season ahead.

Ipswich Basketball club is therefore setting up this Crowdfunder in order to search for support in ensuring our Senior teams can not only train and compete for the upcoming season, but also assist in ensuring the long term future of the programme as an outlet for our most talented young players.
