Base 2 Base began as a Gold Coast based online baseball & softball equipment and supplies store, family owned and operated by Linda & Cam who founded the business in 2015.
For Linda, baseball has been a part of her life from the time her younger brother began playing Tee-ball, right at this moment, without even knowing it, this is where the love & passion for the game began.
Fast forward a number of years, Linda & Cam registered their kids to play Tee-ball, the kids LOVED everything about the game and so the passion for the sport grew further within the family. Very soon Linda & Cam were playing baseball at the same club as their kids, volunteering to coach, score, umpire, becoming accredited in coaching and scoring, as well as helping out wherever they were needed to assist the club.
After a few years the kids had moved through some of the junior grades, at this point Cam & Linda found there was a real need from the community to be able to purchase equipment locally. This is where the story of Base 2 Base begins…
In 2015 with a small amount of capital and a lot of hard work to get off the ground, hitting a ton of brick walls and being told by many “it can’t be done” they pushed through the barriers to pursue their dream.
In 2018, the next step for Base 2 Base was acquiring the distributorship rights in Australia & New Zealand for PowerNet. This range of products broadened the market place for Base 2 Base, now with the ability to offer a large range of top quality sporting nets for Baseball and Softball as well as branching out into Soccer, Cricket, Volleyball and Lacrosse. From here Base 2 Base evolved to become Base 2 Base Sports.
A slogan for the business was formed, but what does Base 2 Base Sports slogan “PLAY. DREAM. ACHIEVE.” mean to them?
PLAY: Play the game you love, enjoy & are passionate about for as long as you can.
DREAM: As kids, we dream of who we want to be, what we want to do & where we want to go. As adult’s, life is busy and we dream less, we believe no-one should stop dreaming, you deserve to dream, the possibilities are endless.
ACHIEVE: Are you taking the field for the first time or playing your 100th game? You can achieve great things by taking that first step, even if you don’t achieve what you set out to, you’ll still be further ahead than when you started. You may even achieve other amazing things that you didn’t set out to do in the first place…go ahead take the first step.
While Linda & Cam feel their journey at Base 2 Base has only just begun, the future of the business is what excites them; their customers motivate them to strive for more, to provide the service they need and deliver a personal experience you will remember.
"Thank you for your continued support, it means the world to us!"
