Milnerton Baseball Club
Milnerton Mavericks Baseball Club was formed in 2008. We are a community orientated club that has introduced baseball to the children of Du Noon. During 2010, we entered our first development side in the Western Province league. Due to financial difficulties, we had to limit our youth development programs. Interaction between the more affluent residential area and the poorer Du Noon community has helped to create a unique bond and atmosphere within our club.
Up until now, Mavericks have managed to support their development program through hard work and donations by their committee members alone. If the Club has better funding and sponsorship, the club would be able to offer these children and baseball a great deal more.
Our club is situated at Theo Marais Sports Complex, Koeberg Road, Milnerton. We were fortunate enough to receive funding in 2012 to build our very own clubhouse, although since then with limited funding we have not been able to keep up with our upgrades. Again hard work by the committee has kept the clubhouse and fields looking good.
Our community of which the youth are the most vulnerable, are facing massive socio-economic issues including poverty, crime and drug abuse. While we as a club, are actively trying to keep these kids off the streets and at the same time share with them the love we have for baseball, we need your help to make our efforts go even further.
