Following a productive consultation period, Basketball England is now pleased to announce the finalised list of changes for the 2018-19 season.
The engagement we have received is very important to us. We can better shape the league and provide the services needed if we know more about what you want from our competitions. The consultation and ideas for change were based on feedback and research undertaken throughout the last 12 months, leading to us suggesting a number of important changes for the NBL. Some of these changes have now been finalised, and some have been amended based on the feedback we have received.
The way we have assessed the feedback received and made conclusions to help shape next season is based on how the changes proposed help to improve the NBL. These are based on a number of key principles. These are:
There are now three ways that we are feeding back the conclusions of the recent consultation period. Firstly, there is a document of finalised changes, the rationale for each change, the feedback we have received and any further suggestions. That document has been linked at the bottom of this page. Secondly, any member or member club that emailed us during the consultation period will receive a direct response to their questions within the next ten working days. This will either be via return email, or telephone, depending on the nature of the feedback. Finally, any aspect of feedback that we received that doesn’t relate to the NBL consultation directly, we will still respond to within the next ten working days.
This initial consultation period will be the first in a number of feedback and consultation windows throughout upcoming NBL seasons. For day to day feedback please contact us on email@example.com. When planning for the 2019/20 season, this process will begin significantly earlier in the calendar and we’ll have more information on that in early 2019.
The entry period for the 2018/19 National League season is still open and will run until 09:00am on 13 June 2018. For any queries on NBL entries, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
