Senior Men’s Basketball
The LBBL Men’s Basketball League is open to all ages and abilities. The league provides adults the opportunity to keep fit and socialise in a competitive basketball league and cup tournament. The season runs from September through to May/June depending on fixtures.
The LBBL offers 4 divisions of varying abilities with division 1 offering close to national league standards moving down to division 4 where teams consist of a mix of new junior and senior players. Groby who play in division 1 have close links with the Leicester Riders Foundation and professional team, helping form part of the development programme for the British professional game.
A majority of the clubs in the league hold open training sessions in the weeks leading up to the start of the season and open training sessions between game nights.
How do I join a LBBL Basketball club?
In order to play in the LBBL, each player must be registered with Basketball England. This includes basic insurance to protect players and officials. Each club will have its own subscription fee used to cover the cost of court hire and officials. Please contact your nearest or prefered club for details.
If you do not wish to join, most open sessions are on a pay as you go basis so keep an eye out for open sessions or contact your nearest club for details.
Can I enter a team in the LBBL?
Yes. We welcome new teams provided they are within our catchment area. Please visit the Guide for new clubs and registration page for details.
Women are welcome in the LBBL.
The LWBL only has one division and we recognise that game nights may not be convenient in the women’s only league. The LBBL welcomes women who wish to play in the LBBL. Many teams have female players making the competition more diverse (and showing up the men when it comes to shooting 3-pointers!). Please contact your nearest club for information.
