Looking Forward to the 2017/2018 Season
The 2016/2017 Season has now finished and the Club has started planning for the 2017/2018 Season.
Over the Summer there will be a number of events, including the Club’s Awards Night, Easter & Summer Camps, Tournaments and scrimmage sessions for assessment of potential team players.
Training sessions for all teams will continue throughout the Summer with a couple of short breaks whilst the court at the ABT&CC is cleaned, re-laid and re-marked.
Official training for the 2017/2018 season will commence week beginning 7 August 2017.
2017/2018 Season Fixtures for all the teams, except the U12’s, will be published on the Fixtures pages when they are issued by Basketball England.
Details and confirmation of all the above will be given 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’s 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 teams’ 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.
