The British Flyball Association

The BFA is an Unincorporated Association, meaning that it is an organisation set up by a group of members who come together to provide competitive sporting opportunities for people of all ages, regardless of their ability, with their dogs, family and friends. The BFA is not a business. The association has no owners and does not exist to make a profit. It has no paid employees and all officials are volunteers, some elected by the membership committee, some appointed by the committee, but none of the officials receive any compensation for their time which is provided free and in addition to their other personal or work commitments out of their joy for the sport.

The BFA provide a national framework and governance structures for flyball activities across the UK, throughout the year, and hold a national championship events annually in August, which is amongst the largest competitive dog sport events in the world. Over 15000 dogs have been registered to race with the BFA and there are currently over 3000 active human members, with over 450 separate flyball teams having raced in BFA events in 2019. Over two thirds of the members are women, and over a third of our members are either under the age of 18 or over the age of 60.

2019 marked the British Flyball Association’s 25th Anniversary by which time the association had grown to over 3,000 active members and had put on over 100 sanctioned competitions up and down the country. The BFA Championships, for the first time ever, was bigger than the US version, making the BFA Championships held in the UK the biggest flyball competition in the world!

2024 will mark the BFA’s 30th Anniversary which is sure to be an exciting year.
