November has been a good month for British Basketball. With funding confirmed from Sport England for the next two years and Basketball Wales formally committing its long term future to British Basketball, alongside Basketball England and Basketball Scotland, there is a lot to be positive about.
Since its formation in 2006 to enable Great Britain teams to compete in FIBA and FIBA Europe international competitions, British Basketball has delivered significant progress on the court as evidenced by an unprecedented six appearances in European Championship finals by the GB men and women, first time appearances in A Division, medals at age group levels and our significant climb in world rankings during that time.
