About British Basketball Federation

Initially tasked with the objective of steering the Great Britain men's and women's basketball teams through to the London 2012 Olympic Games, British Basketball in its modern form has been in existence since December 2006.

The recent journey since 2006 produced achievements right from the beginning, when the senior men's team was promoted from its starting point in the then Division B, up to Division A. By utilising players with world-class pedigree such as Luol Deng and Pops Mensah-Bonsu, the team punched a ticket for a historic first trip to the Final Round of EuroBasket (European Championship) in 2009.

British Basketball also launched its first high performance strategy to create a single coherent pathway to develop talented youngsters in England, Scotland and Wales, and to grow the game in Britain.

In 2010, the senior men once again booked their spot at the EuroBasket Final Round and there was a double cause for celebration, as the senior women's team grabbed their own slice of history when they qualified for the Final Round of EuroBasket Women. A year later, the women stepped out in Poland and made a run to the second phase of the competition.

The big flag wavers in 2011 were the U20 Women who not only gained a gold medal in 2010 by winning Division B to qualify for the European Championship Division A, but managed to make a scintillating run to the Quarter Finals to finish eighth in Novi Sad, Serbia. This was a new high-water mark and the highest position for any home nation youth team.

By the landmark year of 2012, both men's and women's GB Basketball teams took to the floor in London, with the men competing at an Olympic Games for the first time since 1948 and the women making an Olympic debut.
