    Weʼve raised £1,010 to Women’s Basketball local Sheffield team looking for funding to support costs for venue hire for training and fixtures, officials & new kit

    Sheffield, UK
    Funded on Saturday, 26th January 2019

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    We were previously part of a local women's national league basketball team but sadly due to personal difference within the club, the women's team were withdrawn from the league with only 2 weeks notice before the season was due to start. This has had a devastating impact on all the members of this team in being unable to play the sport we all know and love. As a team we have decided to stand together and create a team, our own team in order for all of us to participate. We are are seeking support from anyone that can help with funding for a training venue hire, new kit, venue hire for all our home fixtures, officials for home fixtures, a level 2 coach and general running costs for a team.

    On average the general costing to run a club is as follows.....

    £50 per hour venue hire - as a club we need at least 2 hours training per week (22 weeks in total = £2,200) and each home game is minimum 2 hours, with 8 home fixtures in the league to be played (£800). This totals to be at least £3,000.

    £10 per person for table officials per game where a minimum of 2 are required per home fixture = £160.

    £25 per referee standard price plus cost covering mileage for each referee. 2 referees are required for each home game played = at least £400

    Full set of 12 kits one home kit required and one away kit required = at least £400

    Players will individually be paying approximately £200 each to contribute and we would be really appreciative if you could help support our women's team wanting to participate in the basketball season this year! Thank you!
