British Baseball Federation

The British Baseball Federation (BBF) will be hosting the Youth National Baseball Championships (YNBCs) on Sat 14 and Sun 15 September 2019 at Farnham Park (Beaconsfield Rd, Slough SL2 3BP). 


There is no registration fee for all BBF members club youth teams to be a part of the YNBC's. However, for non-affiliated teams they can enter an application to be reviewed by the BBF for eligibility to the tournament. If a non-BBF youth member team wants to enter the YNBCs, they are subject to a £25 entry fee. 

DIFFERENT SKILLS DIVISIONs

The BBF YNBCs are both for skilled and developmental players. Hence, there are two mentioned skills levels for the YNBCs. That is, 

  • Skilled Level: Players with two or more years of organised baseball experience or advanced skills, he or she should take part with a registered BBF member club in the Skilled Division. 
  • Developmental Level: For players with two years or less of experience, or still developing, he or she can take part in our Developmental Division. 

The aim of the above is to mix the teams with skills against other teams with similar skills, which makes the experience for all more rewarding," said a spokesperson for the BBF. 

IMPORTANT: There is no guarantee there will be play for each division (whether Developmental or Skilled) as it is based off how many teams enter, per age and skill divisions. On or before 30 August the BBF will confirm each divisional tournament format.
