The UK Government has announced that the country will move to Step 3 of their roadmap to ease COVID-19 restrictions from Monday 17 May.

Basketball England has liaised with Sport England and the department of Media, Culture and Sport, and can confirm the approach for basketball outlined below. Basketball England’s updated roadmap will see all levels of organised basketball move to Level 1 which permits outdoor and indoor training with a max of 30 people per court.

Organised basketball

Defined as any level (elite, youth and senior) of basketball undertaken by Basketball England affiliated clubs and registered members at Return To Play Level 1:

  • Organised outdoor and indoor organised basketball permitted – maximum 30 people per court
  • Competitive basketball in outdoor and indoor settings
  • Spectators are allowed indoors, but the total number of all in attendance – participants, coaches, officials and spectators – must be agreed by and aligned to the capacity permitted by the venue.

Further details are available on the Basketball England website, including Game Day Guidance for roles and maximum numbers.

GB Maxibasketballers in Englland, Scotland and Wales will now all be able to travel, and with hotels also opening up to the general public from the same date, all our players will be able to attend camp as and when invited.
