New Forest Baseball Club are delighted to announce another stateside partnership for the 2024 season.

International Sports Turf Research Centre (ISTRC) near Kansas City have become the New Forest Thunder’s game ball sponsor for the 2024 season. With the Thunder Knights extending to two teams and the need for extra equipment, the support from ISTRC will prove invaluable.

Based in Lenexa, in the Kansas City metro area, ISTRC develop a better understanding of the physical properties of sand-based greens, push-up greens, and athletic fields throughout the US.

Working with hundreds of courses throughout multiple States, including most of the top-rated courses in the world, ISTRC has built a strong database of information and knowledge.

ISTRC President and COO Eric Doherty said “I’ve been following the progress of the Thunder Knights since their formation and I am very happy to support the growth of this fantastic team. Even though we are across the pond, we are New Forest Baseball fans and we wish them nothing but success for 2024 and beyond.”

TK’s General Manager, Andy Moore, said: “Not only does this sponsorship highlight the worldwide reach baseball has, the growth of the sport in the UK, but it also highlights the hard work our baseball club has put in. ISTRC will be a welcome addition to our ever growing club and we can’t thank them enough for their support!”
