MASECO Private Wealth Sponsors London Sports
MASECO Private Wealth are pleased to announce that we have recently become sponsors of London Sports, the UK’s largest and long-established youth baseball & girls’ softball league. Founded in 1986, London Sports have registered and trained over 15,000 children to play baseball and softball in over 12,000 games. Their goal is to give every player a chance to learn about the sport, improve their skills and develop self-confidence and self-esteem. We were drawn towards the community spirit that has evolved over the years down at Wormwood Scrubs Park, where all their games are played, as we feel this is reflective of our own values. As one of the first B Corporations in the UK, we value our role in the community as much as we value our bottom line. Click here for further details about B Corporation accredited companies.
We are excited to work with the London Sports organisers, the children and their families, and are enthusiastic about contributing to the London Sports Scholarship Infrastructure Fund, with the introduction of a Player of the Week and Home Run Leaderboard. The newly formed Scholarship Infrastructure Fund was initiated to pay for underprivileged children in the area to be able to join the league free of charge and participate alongside the youth players around London. As a non-profit organisation, London Sports relies heavily on sponsorship so that the league is accessible for all. We look forward to growing the Fund, the number of league members and increasing baseball popularity outside of the US!
One of our founding partners has a close affiliation with baseball and has been taking his kids to play softball and baseball with London Sports for many years. He has always been deeply impressed with the inclusive and charitable nature of the organisation. The decision to sponsor London Sports and the Scholarship Infrastructure Fund was based on his first-hand experience with the league.
The season commences on Saturday April 14th and continues until June 10th. All games will be played on Saturday and Sunday at Wormwood Scrubs Park in White City and are open to boys or girls aged 5-18, with or without experience.
Hopefully we will see some of you down at the scrubs!
