Stakeholders and members of the public will be able to have their say on the future of British basketball when a consultation is launched this week.

On 24 March, interested parties will be invited to comment on the status of the game and its future ambition, with an emphasis on clubs, facilities, coaches and officials, as well as performance and participation.

In a year of transition for British basketball, the British Basketball Federation (BBF) will take up its membership of the international federation FIBA in October 2016, taking the place of individual memberships held by England, Wales and Scotland. As a result, the national teams of England, Wales and Scotland will unify under Team GB.

The BBF – chaired by former Football Association (FA) executive Visit Nick Humby – held its fourth board meeting on 11 March 2016 at Sport England’s office in London.

As part of an industry-wide consultation process, Humby has held meetings with Sport England, sportscotland and Sport Wales, as well as sponsors Molten and Kappa, BBL and WBBL clubs, FIBA, the British Olympic Association and Sharon Hodgson MP – chair of the All Parliamentary Group for Basketball.

As a result of strategy work led by Deloitte, the BBF has identified six strategic theme to develop both the men’s and women’s game: performance, talent development, professional leagues, participation, commercial/broadcast/promotion, and governance/operations.

In addition, the BBF is expecting to announce the appointment of a new non-executive director responsible for finance in April.
