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.
RETURN TO PLAY SUMMER LEAGUE 2021 (WOMEN'S & MEN'S TEAMS)
The Men's Summer Basketball League will start in July 2021. As in previous years, we will accept the first 8 teams that pay the full fee. There will be 2 pools of 4 teams each that will play each other once. The teams from each pool will go to quater-finals playing a team from the other pool. Therefore there will be a minimum of 5 games to be played plus play-off games. The league will prioritise new teams first. All games are as per FIBA. The venue is St Aloysius’ College, Hornsey Lane, London, N6 5LY.

RETURN TO OFFICIATE SUMMER 2021
The league is working with our sister organization, the London Academy for Basketball Officials, to assist a safe return to officiating in the London area. We have scheduled friendly games with our league, BUCS, AoC, and other leagues to help officials to develop, complete their assessments (level 2 and level 3 referee/table official) and gather experience and feedback with approved tutors/assessors. Please contact us if you are interested in this development programme.
The league runs a regular season (league and cup tournaments) from October to April and continues in the summer with a men's summer league. The fees for this season will include payment of court bookings, officials’ fees, club registration with Basketball England, website and trophies fees. The league games have 24-second shot clock and a full crew of 3 table officials and 2 referees. All the members of the league committee are volunteers. The league has a central venue format.
