About BaseballSoftball UK Facilities Fund

BaseballSoftballUK's Two Sports One Ambition strategic plan was launched in August 2020, with one of the key strategic priorities to support to grassroots organisations by making them stronger, safer and sustainable. Two key features of the strategy are:

  • Helping teams/clubs/leagues integrate into, and become, an important part of the local community
  • Taking a lead role in enabling the creation and improvement of appropriate local facilities across the UK.

BaseballSoftballUK has dedicated £50,000 over five years (2021-2025) to enable clubs and leagues to build and upgrade local facilities across the UK through a new Facilities Fund.

Who can apply?

BaseballSoftballUK's Facilities Fund is open to any baseball and softball not-for-profit club, league or association in the UK officially registered to the BaseballSoftballUK Development Charter.

BaseballSoftballUK cannot fund individuals (including sole traders), or organisations established to make a profit. For further eligibility clarity, please contact your relationship manager.

What we can fund:

The BaseballSoftballUK Facilities Fund is specifically designed to help clubs improve the fixed assets of their facilities.

The funds may be used for goods such as:

  • backstops
  • dirt
  • fencing
  • dugouts
  • pitching mounds
  • 'permanent' storage, i.e. on-site shipping containers

How much can I apply for?

The maximum award from the BaseballSoftballUK Facilities Fund will be £5K per club per year, while the expected average award will be around £2K. At least two awards will be given out by BaseballSoftballUK each year for the first five years of the Fund's existence. Further awards may become available based on future funding.
