Looking Forward to the 2017/2018 Season
Basketball England has issued draft fixtures for the 2017/2018 Season, allowing draft fixtures to be created for all LBC teams in the various National League & Cup competitions.
For Senior Men these are NBL Division 2, the Patrons Cup and the National Cup.
For the U18’s they are NBL U18 Premier Division (North) and the U18 National Cup.
For the U16 Red team they are NBL U16 Premier Division (North) and the U16 National Cup.
For the U16 Black team they are NBL U16 Conference Division (North West) and the U16 National Cup.
For the U14’s it is NBL U14 Conference Division (North West 1).
The U12’s will play in a series of local round-robin tournaments.
Details and confirmation of all the above will be published on the LBC Facebook page over the Summer.
We believe that until Basketball is recognised in the UK as a spectator attraction as well as a participatory sport, facilities will continue to be provided without any consideration being given to spectator accommodation and welfare. Our Home Court has spectator accommodation and we have invested to enhance it and make spectating an attractive experience.
We therefore encourage you to come and support LBC teams - not just the Division 2 team, but the younger teams as well. All the players appreciate spectator support, the more the better.
There will be an entrance charge for the Division 2 games, but in the 2016/2017 season it was only £2 for adults and £1 for children. There will be no entrance charge for the other games.
If you want to do more than just spectate, we are always on the lookout for ambitious Players, for Team and Assistant Coaches, for Game & Table Officials, for volunteers to help with the set-up and running of Home games, team management, the taking and processing of photos & videos, the taking, recording and publishing of game statistics.

If you run a company or organisation, there are a number of ways in which you could promote your products/services in association with LBC, whilst supporting the Club’s activities.
