The Womens’ British Basketball League (WBBL) was founded in 2014 with the aim of creating a high-quality professional women’s league in the UK.
There are eleven franchises in major towns and cities across the nation. For more information about the current 11 franchises visit the clubs section of the WBBL website.
Franchise development is at the fore of the league’s strategic intentions, in order to bring top-level basketball to as many people as possible.
WBBL clubs are increasingly built on the foundations of strong community programmes. Whilst providing positive role models for young people, clubs are also actively involved in developing the next generation of British basketball players and promoting the sport, and associated healthy lifestyles, to young people in their localities.
The WBBL is a key partner in the development of basketball in Britain whilst also providing somewhere for local people to pick up a basketball in the constituencies of WBBL clubs. The WBBL consider both the national governing body, Basketball England, and the Team GB national programme, run by British Basketball, to be prominent partners in the development of basketball in Britain.
The WBBL is run by a eleven person board, which includes one director from each club, and the league is administered by a central office.
The WBBL has partnerships with the BBC, iPro Sport, Molten and Kappa.
