Stewart Kellett, Basketball England CEO, said:

"Congratulations to our amazing 2022 award winners. Basketball is fighting back after a tough period during COVID and the without the network of clubs, volunteers, staff, officials, coaches and others who keep our game so vibrant and valuable for our communities, there would be no basketball.

"You our the lifeblood of the game and we thank you for everything you do."
