Support Your National Teams

Great Britain Softball National Teams have achieved significant results over the past two decades in European and world competitions, despite the fact that none of them receive any public funding.

So it is nothing short of amazing that:

  • The GB Women's Fastpitch Team has been ranked as high as second in Europe and competed in every World Championship since 2006.
  • The GB Co-ed Slowpitch Team has won 10 out of 11 European Championships.
  • The GB Men's Slowpitch Team won the first-ever European Men's Slowpitch Championship in 2018.
  • The GB Men's Fastpitch Team is ranked fourth in Europe and 14th in the world.
  • The GB Under-19 Women's Fastpitch Team won the European Championship in 2016.
  • Other youth fastpitch softball teams in all age groups are making progress up the European rankings.

However, maintaining our national team programmes at this level is becoming increasingly difficult as players and their families, and in many cases coaches and managers as well, struggle with the costs of training, preparation and official competitions overseas, which can amount to tens of thousands of pounds per team per year. So our national teams need help from the softball community.

Below is a list of the official European and World tournaments that GB softball teams will be competing in in 2019, and beside each entry is a donate button that will allow you to make a contribution through Paypal to help that team get to its competition. Anything you can do to help, no matter how small, will be gratefully received!
