In what is the first basketball-focused campaign on TikTok in the UK, BE and the BBL are inviting basketball lovers to share their best basketball content on TikTok.
"Our team have been using TikTok to share basketball content to a new audience and we've been encouraged to see it getting a great response.
"We're seeing great videos being shared by fans, content-makers and teams across the sport and would encourage everyone who loves the game in Britain, whether your thing is NBL, BBL, 3x3, the national teams or up-and-coming young talent, to use the hashtag to celebrate it."

From the hustle of training to the thrill of gameday, TikTok allows us and our clubs a unique and direct way to share with our fans and communities. We’ve also loved seeing great basketball content shared by fans and creators from the basketball community and cannot wait to see what they share on the hashtag to celebrate the sport we love!”
