Ball Again Funding Opportunity

Following on from the successful launch of England Basketball's new initiative to increase adult participation, Ball Again, England Basketball are pleased to announce a fresh round of funding available to affiliated clubs, associations and leagues as well as leisure centres with at least one indoor basketball court.

Successful applicants may receive funding to start up to four new Ball Again sessions. Those organisations able to demonstrate success in attracting new participants, or bring back those who had previously stopped playing, can also benefit from the 'Baller Gain incentive fund.

In addition, we are offering eligible organisations the chance to pilot Ball Again TEAMplay, aimed at encouraging higher levels of participation through supporting new and existing weekly / monthly adult leagues.

Full details can be found by visiting and clicking on Eligible for funding?.
