The UK is part of the Europe and Africa Region for Little League, Junior League, and Senior League play.

The winners of the UK Little League Qualifiers will earn the right to travel to the European Little League Headquarters in Kutno, Poland in July to contest for the European and African Little League Qualifiers.  The winning prize is qualification for the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, United States later in August.  In 2013, the UK Little League team lost to Germany in the Quarterfinals in the European and African Little League Qualifiers.

The winners of the UK Junior League Qualifiers will also travel to Kutno, Poland to compete in the European and African Junior League Qualifiers in July.  The winner of this regional tournament will go on to play in the Junior League World Series in Taylor, Michigan, USA in August.  In 2013, the UK Junior League team lost to the eventual champions, Czech Republic, in the Quarterfinals of the European and African Junior League Qualifiers.

The winners of the UK Senior League Qualifiers will compete in the European and African Senior League Qualifiers in Novara, Italy in early July.  The winner of this regional qualifying tournament will move on to compete in the Senior League World Series in Bangor, Maine in August.  Last year, Great Britain made a run to the finals of the Regional Tournament but lost to Italy for a chance to compete in the World Series.

Little League Softball

Softball popularity and participation are growing in the United Kingdom.  At this time, no UK softball teams take part in any European and African Qualifying Tournaments, but if softball continues its growth and sustainability, teams will certainly enter in the regional qualifying tournaments in the future.
