Liz Warner appointed Groundskeeper at Farnham Park
23 May 2022
BaseballSoftballUK (BSUK) is delighted to appoint Liz Warner to the role of Head Groundskeeper at Farnham Park National Baseball & Softball Complex for the 2022 outdoor season.
In her role, Liz will be the lead for facility maintenance at Farnham Park, helping to maintain the fields and the facility to the highest possible standard. In addition, Liz will assist with site improvements and upgrades.
Liz discovered softball in 1994 following a long netball career and hasn't stop playing since. She started playing for the Slough Sloggers, and now plays for Bracknell (WMSL) and the Green Sox (NSL 1).
Liz’s teams have had success before, as she also pitches for the reigning National Single-Sex Slowpitch Champion No Balls and has previously played for other National Champions.
In 2001, Liz was selected to the GB Softball squad for the first time and represented the Lions at two World Cups and two European Championships during her international career.
In her professional career, Liz worked for 22 years with adults with learning disabilities as an assistant unit manager of a residential home and a day centre, both with the NHS and Slough Council.
During the Covid lockdowns, Liz was also a prolific volunteer at Farnham Park, with the site being temporarily renamed in her honour in November 2021. Her passion for the sport of softball and for the Complex itself led her to a change in career following the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions.
Speaking about her appointment, Liz said, ”I love softball, having played for nearly 30 years, and this is one of the best ways for me to stay involved and help elevate the sport, and the National Facility. I’m excited to be a part of the BSUK team, and to see you out at Farnham Park this summer!”
Facility Operations & Events Manager, Liz Knight, added, “We’re very pleased to have Liz lead our grounds staff in 2022; she brings a unique mix of skills and experience and has been involved at Farnham Park for many years as a volunteer and player. I’m excited to have her in this role! I’ve enjoyed working with her so far this year, and we’re looking forward to a great summer at the Complex.”
