About The League‎ > ‎

Playing Basketball for us

How we operate
London Amateur Basketball League operates its own 'League' of circa eight teams in each of two Men's Divisions (Div 1 & Div 2) and six teams in one Women's League.  

We also manage officials' appointments for national, local, college, university leagues across over thirty venues around Greater London who are often looking for new players to join them.

If you're interested in playing basketball for us, you'll first need to decide whether you wish to join one of LABL's own teams, or another (non-LABL) London team. This decision may depend upon your current level and location within London.  We recommend you spend some time doing some researching before committing to a team.
