Active Lincolnshire is distributing the Together Fund in Lincolnshire on behalf of Sport England. The fund exists to help to reduce the negative impact of coronavirus and support community groups working with our target audiences to grow and enable more people to be more active.
Wragby Warhammers Baseball Club was formed in May 2021 in response to the pandemic, helping those looking to get active find a new inclusive sport. The club is based in Wragby, a rural town that has been hard hid by the impact of Covid.
Baseball is a fantastically inclusive sport, welcoming people of all backgrounds, genders, and abilities. However, it also expensive with basic equipment (including bat, batting helmet and glove) costing £150+ per player. The Together Fund grant will allow the club to purchase equipment and kit for new participants to the club who have previously identified cost as a barrier to attendance.
All coaching is given free of charge enabling the club to deliver the weekly sessions free to new participants.
