DO YOU WANT TO TRY OUT FOR A GREAT BRITAIN SOFTBALL NATIONAL TEAM?
If so, the first question you need to ask yourself is: am I eligible?
To be eligible to play for any of the Great Britain National Teams listed above, you must be a British passport holder, or be eligible to apply for and receive a British passport.
If you were not born in the UK and if you live overseas, then you will only be eligible for British citizenship and a British passport if you have at least one parent who is -- or was born as -- a British citizen. Having a British grandparent, great-grandparent, aunt or uncle will not do.
If you have any question about whether you might be eligible for a British passport, email GB Management Team member Bob Fromer (email@example.com).
If you already have a British passport or feel you are eligible to get one, then the next step towards trying out is to complete a GB Softball Application Form here.
We'll looking forward to hearing from you!
