The Basketball League Limited (BBL) is responsible for the United Kingdom’s premier men’s basketball competition which extend the length of the United Kingdom, from Plymouth to Glasgow.

The BBL Clubs deliver programmes around both basketball and a wider social agenda in their franchise areas. These programmes are delivered usually in partnership with schools, local authorities, local universities and colleges of further education, local PCTs, housing associations, community groups and charities. The BBL Club programmes cover a wide scope of activity, including basketball participation, basketball elite programmes, working with disability, education related, healthy living related, in aid of social inclusion, and in a variety of other related areas.

The BBL Club programmes are generally delivered via Club Foundations or through the Club’s Community Interest Companies. The programmes are generally regionally based, recognising the franchise areas allocated to Clubs.

The Basketball Foundation was established in June 2011 as a not for profit organisation to coordinate and deliver national programmes, consistent with the work of the Foundations of Clubs at a local and regional level.
