LONDON'S BIGGEST GRASSROOTS BASKETBALL LEAGUE

- WHERE TOMORROW'S STARS PLAY TODAY! -

The Community Basketball League (CBL) is the biggest and fastest growing grassroots basketball competition in London with over 1,200 active players representing over 120 teams across the capital.  Our league provides organised competitions and playing opportunities for a wide range of players from absolute beginners through to the aspiring future stars of our game!

The CBL currently provides competitions for both boys and girls across the following age groups: Under 10, Under 12, Under 14, Under 16, Under 18, Under 20 and Under 25.

The league is a registered non-profit organisation which was originally developed from the success of the 2012 Olympic Legacy program, the London School of Basketball, which set out on a mission to get more young Londoner's playing basketball more of the time.  With the huge influx of new players shooting hoops across the city, we developed the CBL to cater to the demand for more competitions and more quality opportunities to play.

We provide skills-appropriate games for newly formed teams who are just beginning their basketball journey, but also offer competitions for more experienced teams who are looking for something more challenging without the heavier time and cost commitments of the National League.  We keep costs of participation as low as possible, by centrally pooling our leagues into a 'Central Venue' format, which takes care of all of your facility, referee and table official costs for the entire season and playoffs for a one-time registration fee.

Our aim is to provide easily accessible, enjoyable routes into organised basketball competition, putting an emphasis on delivering a positive playing experience so all those who play in the CBL are inspired to stay in the sport for the long-term.

Fresh for the 2017/2018 season we're introducing 2 divisions in each age category to accommodate the right level of competition for all teams and players who are interested in playing in the CBL.  Experienced players and competitive teams should apply for 'Premier League' consideration, while new teams with less experienced players who are perhaps entering organised competition for the first time should apply for the 'Development League'.

The 2017/2018 season will also mark the launch of the first 'CBL Community Cup' competition, which is an open-entry 'knockout' tournament for grassroots teams across the capital.  Teams do not have to play in the Premier or Development Leagues to participate, which works well for teams who cannot commit to a full season of games but still want to provide the fun and excitement of a tournament experience for their players.

In our ongoing mission to continually develop the game, we are also introducing CBL Skills Development Camps & Clinics to help develop skills and prepare players for to be at their best for all of the games during the season.  Our camps and clinics are open to any interested player, whether already in the CBL or hoping to find a team to join within the CBL.

Take a moment to review each of our offers below and the FAQ section that should answer many of the general enquiries we receive.  If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us here: CONTACT US.
