Basketball England’s Performance and Technical Manager Steve Bucknall said: "As we build on the momentum of last year's Great Britain European championship campaigns, this tournament allows us to assess players earlier ahead of potential selection to Great Britain age group teams in 2020.

"For England, we will use this tournament to look at a wider pool of players outside of those who we are monitoring on a weekly basis during their National League seasons.

"We also see our partnership with Scotland and Wales strengthening and providing all our home nation's players with the opportunity to compete, receive exposure and be assessed for international standards."
