UPDATE: FIBA/BE Under 14 Girls 3x3

We have made a change to the entry procedure, so that all is needed is an adult contact, and subsequently the £5 per team entry fee.

Please pass the word around as this may help to encourage entries before all the player details have been gathered. There has been lots of interest, but few formal entries up to now.


The two dates are:

Sunday 22 April at Uffculme School, Devon (only 5 minutes from M5)

Saturday 28 April at Bristol Metropolitan Academy (easily accessible from M5/M4/M32)


This should be great fun, and could also benefit clubs who may get some new recruits through beginners taking part.

If you don't run a girls' team/section as such but have a few girls playing, or siblings/chldren of other club members, this would be a good opportunity for them to play with and against other girls.

REMINDER: FIBA/BE Under 14 Girls 3x3

This is a great development which we hope will get more young girls involved in the game. Each region is staging a 3x3 tournament for U14 girls (school year 9 and younger) as part of a national project with support from FIBA. As we have such a widespread region, we are going for two tournaments.

Whilst we are keen to see girls who are already playing basketball involved, we are particularly targeting teams of beginners, or those in which an existing player introduces friends to the game by forming a team. We hope that this will appeal to girls for whom there is no dedicated team but who play in boys’ or mixed teams. For this reason, we are planning to have two levels of competition: Learners and Improvers.

Even if you do not regularly run basketball or teams for girls, please consider this as there may be a few hidden talents in children or siblings of your members. I would also appreciate it if you could forward to schools in your area who are active in the game.

South West Regional Management and Chair

The main purpose of this post is to update you (or at least those who have not caught up with the information on BE sources) about the governance of South west basketball.

In the past, regional matters in the South West have been overseen by a Regional Management Committee and a number of colleagues have contributed a good deal of time and effort to developing basketball through this function. Three years ago, Basketball England ceased funding the RMC. With only a small bank balance, the RMC has effectively been dormant in this time, subsidising the Inter County Tournament, Best of the West event etc, and supervising the SW teams in the Regional Development Tournaments, but unable to initiate anything new.

Within the BE plan to revitalise the regions is the intention to gradually re-establish a management group, with each member holding a portfolio for a specific area of development. They, and we, realise that this is a medium to long term objective and will probably be met over a period of several years rather than weeks or months.

The aim is to make regional management an integral part of BE rather than a separate organisation. Whilst this whole process has been rather slower than we would have wished, and the financial arrangements are still not finalised, personally I support this as a positive move for the future development of the game at local and regional level.

You may have noticed that the position of Chair has already been advertised. This will be by BE appointment rather than any elective process. The initial deadline has now passed, and I have not been informed whether any applications have been received for South West. If not, I am sure the closing date will be extended as necessary.

I have held the position of Chair for a few years. There is an expectation of much more regional activity, and especially in the early stages with the recruitment of colleagues to fill other roles. At a time when I am trying to reduce my basketball commitments, it is not something I feel I should take on, and I also believe that some new, younger, blood would support the changes and development best.

I expect that I will remain in post, by default, until such time as a new Chair is appointed, with the target being by May.

The other new positions go beyond the traditional basketball areas such as officiating and coaching, and may interest people with relevant skills and experience in communications, event promotion, fundraising etc. Please let me know informally if you would be interested in contributing to the new structure in any way.

Finally, I would like to show our appreciation of what you all do, every week and mostly un-noticed, to sustain and develop the game. I hope you will have a much better regional structure in future and that everyone will wish to contribute positively to that.

Kind regards
Paul Christensen
