The Home Country Associations of England, Scotland and Wales, as the members of the British Basketball Federation (BBF), have agreed the appropriate level of budget for British Basketball for the next two years.
This agreement is a key component in ongoing discussions to protect and grow the future of British Basketball.
We will continue to work closely with the BBF Board, the British Basketball League (BBL), alongside strong support from the Minister for Sport, Tracey Crouch, Alex Sobel MP, Sir Mike Penning MP, UK Sport and Sport England to get a clear and agreed way forward.
We have seen that when we come together, great things can happen. The Jr. NBA, the Special Olympics, amazing performances for Scotland and England at the 2018 Commonwealth Games and the recent coming together of community and national bodies to keep courts affordable in Edinburgh are all examples. Unsung volunteers across GB are putting in time and effort to support those initiatives and much more in clubs, schools, and with our national teams.
We are committed to putting recent disagreements behind us and working together for the benefit of a fantastic sport.
We will make additional updates to the membership of our associations as and when it is appropriate, and will continue discussions for the long-term benefit of basketball.
