Welcome to London Amateur Basketball League




About the League
Welcome to our website!  We are the London Amateur Basketball League.  Founded in 2006, we have now become one of the largest amateur leagues in the UK .  From a mere handful of players and referees back in 2006, we now not only run our own basketball league, development programme for officials, appointments service in London and keep growing.  The league is run by the league secretary who also attends the league financial affairs with the assistance of the treasurer.  We register players, coaches and officials with Basketball England. 
 
We follow the central venue format.  This season 2014/2015 we play in Raines Foundation School (Approach Road, E2 9LY) and continue with both men’s and women’s competitions.  The league runs a regular season (league and cup tournaments) from September to April and continues in the summer with a men's summer league.  The fees for this season are £930 per team and include payment of court bookings, officials’ fees, club registration with Basketball England , website and trophies fees.  All the members of the league committee are volunteers. 
 
We run a development programme for officials in the London area with our sister organisation the London Academy for Basketball Officials (LABO).  The Academy runs courses (referees and table officials), workshops and provides tutors for our pool of officials. 
 
In the name of the League Committee, I invite you to visit our website and find out about our competitions by visiting the site or, even better, joining one of the clubs.  Or setting a club yourself!
