Basketball England Update
Basketball England has made two key decisions about the 2020/21 season following the recent start of another national lockdown.
Following consultation with the elite teams and players active in the National Basketball League Division One (Men and Women), the season will continue under our current Government-sanctioned Return To Play Guidance with additional Covid-19 testing.
However, non-elite senior and junior NBL/WNBL competitions, suspended until this point, will be cancelled for the season with the option of alternative competition later in the year, should conditions be safe and viable.
After internal reviews and consultation with clubs and players, the following has been agreed to enable a responsible way forward for NBL1/WNBL1 teams, while mitigating the risk presented by the increasing Covid-19 R-rate
Elite level is defined by Government and detailed in Appendix 5 of the BE Return To Play Guidance HERE
Club support during Covid-19
We will communicate further on the resumption of intra-club activity once the Government confirms the end of the lockdown and a return to the tier system.
We have assisted over 200 clubs during the Covid disruption. This service will continue and if any clubs are having difficulty navigating this next phase, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Information& regarding payments already made for club affiliations, memberships, and licences for the 2020/21 season will be published in June.
This will allow us to assess the feasibility of any potential summer activity (eg. mini-leagues, 3x3, summer camps) should Covid restrictions allow. If you have any queries, please email email@example.com.
