London Amateur Basketball League
Welcome to our new site!
We are the London Amateur Basketball League. Founded in 2006, we have now become one of the largest amateur leagues in the UK. From a mere handful of players and referees back in 2006, we now not only run our own basketball league, development programme for officials, appointments service in London and keep growing. The league is run by the league secretary who also attends the league financial affairs with the assistance of the treasurer. We register players, coaches and officials with Basketball England.
Please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to find out about our competitions.
Sudbury Kings have won the Men's Division One Play-off Final and the Cup Tournament Final. On behalf of the London Amateur Basketball League, our congratulations to this newly created club in their first season of competition. The final took place on the 30th April 2023 at St Aloysius College. The runner-up club, London Jaguars (League play-off final) had also reached a play-off final for the first time. This is the first time a club has won the two competitions the league runs.
