Team fees for league teams are to be collected centrally by leagues and passed on to the British Softball Federation by 1 June 2019.  In the case of league teams, it is the responsibility of the league to ensure that fees have been received by the BSF by that date.

Independent (Tournament) Teams are responsible for payment of their own fees direct to the BSF by the same date.



Leagues or Independent Tournament Teams that fail to pay BSF fees by 1 June will be subject to a surcharge of £5 per team per week from 1 June until the fees are paid (equivalent to £1 per team per working day).  This surcharge will be added to the fees.

If fees are not paid by the due date, it may affect eligibility for teams to enter National Championships.
