Inspiring women and girls to engage with basketball

If you have been inspired by the Great Britain Women at this summer’s EuroBasket, get ready for our new campaign to get more women and girls engaged in basketball.

In response to our member’s feedback and our commitment to equality of opportunity and diversity in the game, Basketball England is launching a new campaign called All Girls to engage more women and girls into our sport as fans, players, coaches, officials, volunteers and ambassadors.

Whether you play for fun, want to help others to get involved or aspire to be the next Temi Fagbenle or Johanna Leedham-Warner, this campaign can help us all make a difference.  

Since Team England Women’s medal-winning performance at the Commonwealth Games last year, we have been developing a simple campaign idea that everyone can be part of.

We want to use the inspiration of our national team players and coaches, and success stories in the community game to help change attitudes towards the women and girls’ participation. 

There has never been a better time to get involved as we move towards the Olympics Qualifying Tournament for the GB Senior Women team.
