Project Hub

Basketball Foundation is dedicated to growing participation in basketball nationally and has recently secured Sport England’s largest ever single grant for a community basketball programme to develop 84 new sustainable community basketball clubs with almost 8,000 regular players. Project Hub is a programme to increase the number of people regularly participating in basketball aged 14+. This programme will be delivered across a number of locations nationwide and through local delivery partners including BBL Clubs’ community organisations. The project began in September 2014 with initial delivery by Newcastle Eagles, Leicester Riders and Worcester Wolves. With several more clubs launching delivery in February 2015. 

The Basics

Delivery organisations can apply for up to £95,000 over the delivery period in funding to support growth in community basketball in their area. Should you feel a smaller project is more feasible in your area, funding can be discussed pro rata to the appropriate level.

At this level of funding, the delivery organisation would be expected to develop men’s and women’s programmes:

  • At least 6 club venues
  • 570 regular participants (aged 14+)
  • At least 52 hours of structured basketball per participant
  • Year Round participation opportunities
  • Local competitive opportunities for example existing or new CVL.
