Womens Open Sessions
Oct 5, 2017, 12:05 am

Hi all,

Please see image and forward the info to your team members and anybody who might be interested.

This is a great opportunity for women's basketball and we would like to encourage all WEBBA members to attend and also if you know of any coaches who might be interested to run a session to get in touch.

The open summer sessions were a big success and from the feedback we received we feel this might be a good opportunity to get players from various teams together for a casual, friendly and free of charge 2 hours of basketball.

See you there.

Level 3 Table Officials Course
Aug 21, 2017, 8:52 pm

Please find here an application form for an upcoming level 3 Table Officials Course. Please share this with any potential candidates. Please remember that all senior national league games require a minimum of 1 level 3 Table Official.

Below is an important extract from the form to emphasise this.

The course will be run in conjunction with the Best of the West tournament. Candidates will officiate the tournament games and be provided with feedback on all games. The actual course will take place between 5-9pm on the Saturday night, and the exam at 2.30pm on the Sunday. Attendance for the course is of course essential but the greater your availability over the 2 days the more your will get out of the course. If you can only make part/s of the weekend please still apply.

Dear all,

Please find here for your information a summary of the rules changes for next season, published by FIBA. Please forward this info to your players, so they are aware.

More details will be discussed at the pre-season referee meeting on the 6th September at Abbeywood School (referees are required to attend, but the meeting is open to everyone, so please feel free to attend).

We are also in the process of arranging a Level 1 referee course (approx. 2 hours theory and 2 hours on-court practice).

To have a better idea of how many people would be interested to attend this course, please could you reply to this me at Referees@webba-basketball.org.uk indicating if your club/team are

a) interested to attend and b) how many people wish to attend.

The aim is to run the course in September / October but we are open to suggestions if this will be a weeknight or weekend course (depending on participants).

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any queries,

Best wishes,

Alex Belkner

WEBBA Masters 2017
Jun 19, 2017, 9:51 pm

2017 GB Masters Report – From Densil Williamson.

This year’s GB Masters took place on the 17th & 18th June in Manchester. WEBBA entered a team in the 40’s ‘B’ pool, and the 50’s ‘A’ pool. There was unfortunately no representation with the Ladies competition this year.

We would like to thank everyone for their participation in this year’s masters. Especially Chris Staddon who took over the coaching job for the over 40s from Tony Kissoon (who was promoted/demoted depending on your view to the over 50s). Chris nearly lead the over 40s to overall victory in group B in his first year in charge. That was a magnificent effort from everyone. The team was only beaten on points difference and only lost one game narrowly.

There were 4 new comers to the over 40 squad; David Colclough, Christian Hill, Alex James and Andres Tcach. All fitted in well and added to the over 40s squad and enjoyed the social side of things as well. It was also nice to see Andy Harris for returning to the fold as well. Andy has hardly played any basketball this year, but he wanted to play in this tournament and performed well 

There is a special thanks to Nick Watt. Even though Nick was injured on Saturday, he made the effort to be there to support the guys on Sunday

Now to the over 50s squad. This year they had one of best tournaments for a while. They won two games and forced Harlem (including ex New York Knick – Charles Smith – still 6’10”, despite being over 50!) to play their 'A' game all the way through the match with them. It may not be shown by the score, but they could not take their foot of the peddle as WEBBA worked hard to stop them. and to stay in contention. The final game against Bournemouth was special. The last 4 minutes of the final quarter saw WEBBA play some of their best Basketball of the tournament. WEBBA should feel proud of the way these 2 teams represented them in this year’s tournament. The effort was unbelievable, especially after losing Chris Viera to injury in the first game.

Over 40s results on Saturday;

Plymouth 32 - 46 WEBBA

Nottingham 32 - 44 WEBBA

Over 50s results on Saturday;

Celts 32 -  48 WEBBA

HARLEM 59 - 35 WEBBA

Over 40s results on Sunday;

Bournemouth 35 - 39 WEBBA

Checkmate Knights 46 - 40 WEBBA

Over 50s results on Sunday

WEBBA 26 - 52 North London

WEBBA 37 - 20 Bournemouth

Considering the teams had hardly any training together, they produced some magnificent results. It shows how much potential we have in our squads. The aim for next year is to get at least 3-4 training sessions in before the Masters, so at least we can work on a few plays. Also, we would like to recruit some more players for both teams

Our goal is to have WEBBA mentioned in the same breath as Harlem, Louisiana, London, Sheffield. We are now getting a reputation for playing some good basketball and that is down to those representing WEBBA this weekend.

Thanks also to WEBBA for funding new kit for the 50’s.
