Support & development

Help can come in all shapes and sizes, and means different things to different people.

Maybe you're a coach or official that is looking to take their game to the next level, or you run a club and need help with accessing external funding or bid writing.

Or it could be you want to access Slam Jam, All Girls or 3x3 to help your club pull in more members.

No matter what you need, we can help.

Facility, kit & equipment services

You might only need a ball and a hoop to play, but sometimes basketball needs more. We can help with your facility, be it indoors or out, plus the equipment and kit you need regardless of how you enjoy the sport.


We help to run and support a detailed player pathway and development framework so that the next generation of talented players can continue to shine.


It's not flashy, but it's a vitally important part of your membership. All licenced players, coaches, officials and clubs receive insurance as part of their membership with Basketball England.
