Help with stoolball equipment

Borrow equipment from Stoolball England

If your school or team in England would like to start playing stoolball but you can’t afford all of the equipment, we’ll lend you some. Please contact us. We have a limited supply but we will always try to help.

We ask teams to donate their old stoolball equipment to Stoolball England. We refurbish it and lend it to schools or teams which want to start playing stoolball.

Free equipment from Sainsbury’s Active Kids

Sainsbury’s Active Kids is a scheme where supermarket shoppers collect vouchers which schools can use to buy sports equipment. Starting in 2010, this includes stoolball bats, balls and wickets. If you shop at Sainsbury’s, collect the vouchers and ask your local school to invest them in stoolball.

Schools near a branch of Sainsbury’s typically receive tens of thousands of vouchers in a season, more than enough to buy all the equipment they need to play stoolball.
