Pre Season Referee Seminar - UPDATE #2

At present there is no pre-season seminar planed. I will organise a get together in October. Any questions about the new rules please contact me.

If you have been watching social media, you should be aware that there is a game at the University Arena, 2pm tip, on Saturday 11th September between Gloucester City Queens and Reading Rockets. This game is to celebrate the life of our greatly missed friend Joe Grainger. It would be wonderful if the whole Gloucestershire basketball family came together for this very moving event.

Entry into the game is only £3.

Grainger Cup

The scheduled game between Gloucester City Queens and Worcester Wolves, due to be played on Sunday 12th September had been called off.

Grainger Cup - Update

Gloucester City Queens will now play Reading for the Grainger Cup.

The match will take place @ 2pm on Saturday 11th September at the University Sports Arena, Plock Court, Tewkesbury Road, Gloucester, GL2 9DW.

All spectators are welcome.

Pre Season Referee Seminar

I propose to hold a get together for all referees table officials and coaches, prior to a friendly match between the newly formed professional womenís team, Gloucester City Queens, and Worcester Wolves.

This will be on Sunday 19th September, 2021 at the University Sports Arena, Plock Court, Tewkesbury Road, Gloucester, GL2 9DW.

The game itself will be played to honour the Life of Joe Grainger, and it will be one of many events being held in Gloucester that weekend.

I am hoping the seminar will be hosted by a current BBL/WBBL referee.

Once all the details are finalised I will circulate the time.

I would also hope that everyone attends and stays to watch the game, critique the referees and celebrate the life of Joe Grainger.

Site Update

Basketball England Membership Portal

The Basketball England membership portal is now open, signalling the start of the 2021/2022 season.

With NBL, WNBL, Jnr. NBL and local league competitions all set to get underway in the coming months, players, coaches, officials and other groups can now head online and register for upcoming campaign.

Following agreement from the BE board, initial membership will become free for all, allowing fans, followers, parents and others to join.

Members taking part in licenced activity (training and competition), such as players, coaches and officials, will then pay a licence fee.

The overall fee paid by all local league participants and the majority of National League members will be the same total as paid last season and remains unchanged for a third season running in recognition of the challenging time many in our game have faced during the pandemic lockdown.

Individuals requiring multiple licences for combined roles will still only pay for the most expensive. This will be calculated at the point of purchase by the portal.

The Basketball England membership portal has now reopened following essential maintenance, ready for licence renewals and purchases for the 2021/22 season.

The sign-ups will be staggered as follows:

  • From 2 August to 4 August: Club admins/Team Managers/Area registrars
  • From 5 August to 9 August: Coaches and Officials
  • From 10 August: Players and Others

Members can register at any point from 2 August but queries will be dealt with based on the above onboarding dates.
