British Baseball Federation

Background

The British Baseball Federation is the National Governing Body (NGB) of baseball. The BBF is an all-volunteer organisation and receives no public funding to run its baseball league operations. The BBF is a 100% self-financed NGB.

Equality Policy

The British Baseball Federation (BBF) is committed to encouraging equality and diversity among our participants, volunteers, coaches, officials, with the aim to eliminate unlawful discrimination.

The aim is for our volunteers to be truly representative of all sections of society and our member clubs’ participants and for each person to feel respected and able to give their best. The BBF - in providing (not exhaustive) operating and organising its baseball services, leagues, events - is also committed against unlawful discrimination of participants playing its sport, volunteers or the public. 

The policy’s purpose is to: 

  • Provide equality, fairness and respect for all in our volunteers, whether temporary, part-time or full-time.
  • Not unlawfully discriminate because of the Equality Act 2010 protected characteristics of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, race (including colour, nationality, and ethnic or national origin), religion or belief, sex (gender) and sexual orientation.
  • Oppose and avoid all forms of unlawful discrimination.

The BBF commits to:

  • Encourage equality and diversity in its sport.
  • All volunteers should understand they, can be held liable for acts of bullying, harassment, victimisation and unlawful discrimination, in the course of their involvement in the BBF, against fellow participants, officials, fans, suppliers and the public.
  • Take seriously reports of bullying, harassment, victimisation and unlawful discrimination by fellow participants, volunteers, suppliers, visitors, the public and any others in the course of the organisation’s NGB activities.
  • Such acts mentioned will be dealt with as misconduct and could lead to dismissal and other penalties from the BBF.

IMPORTANT: Sexual harassment may amount to both a criminal matter, and be reported to the authorities such as in sexual assault allegations. In addition, harassment under the Protection from Harassment Act 1997 – which is not limited to circumstances where harassment relates to a protected characteristic – is a criminal offence.

The above equality policy is fully supported by the Executive Board of the British Baseball Federation
