How to get involved with basketball

You might think Basketball is that sport from across the pond - but the popularity here in the United Kingdom has been growing rapidly. 

From Walking Basketball to Wheelchair Basketball, there are a number of ways you can get involved with the sport, regardless of age or ability.

BBL and WBBL on the BBC

The BBC secured the rights to show 32 British Basketball League (BBL) and Women's British Basketball League (WBBL) games live on the BBC Sport website and app this season. 

The finals for the knockout competitions and the play-offs are also on the Red Button. 

The season started in early December, but fear not, we still have several matches still to go! 

What is the BBL?

There are 12 British Basketball League teams from across the nation, all competing for four possible pieces of silverware: Championship, play-offs, Cup and Trophy.

The Championship winners are those that come out on top of the league table at the end of the season.

The top eight teams from the table then enter the end-of-season play-offs, culminating in a final which will be played at London's O2 Arena on 14 May.

The BBL Cup is a knockout competition and was won by the Newcastle Eagles in January.
