In a major step towards stronger development and community engagement for baseball and softball in South Buckinghamshire, BaseballSoftballUK has announced that Chalfont Softball Club has relocated to Farnham Park and will be a centre for development activity at the flagship facility.
The move, which will ultimately involve a club name change, is an opportunity for BSUK to work closely with a strong and pro-active club to increase participation in baseball and softball in the area and to use the iconic venue as a catalyst for further promotion and exposure of the sports.
BSUK has been looking for a club to move to the venue and call it ‘home’, and Chalfont Softball Club, voted Club of the Year in the 2013 Bucks and Milton Keynes Sports Partnership Awards, seems a great fit.
The move will result in a close working relationship between club leaders and BSUK development staff to support delivery of community projects and development programmes aimed at increasing participation in slowpitch softball, fastpitch softball and baseball.
For the club, this will be a great opportunity to grow its membership and activities, utilising the best facility in the country, with the aim of expanding to a multi-stranded club over time. The club will be a focal point at the facility and (capacity permitting) will work with BSUK to support and in some cases lead on a wide range of development projects.
