Founded in 1936, England Basketball (then known as the EBBA) is the governing body for all basketball in England.
A non-profit making organization, it is an association of member clubs and players who elect an Executive Board (comprising of directors) to administer their affairs. The Executive Board employs a number of professional staff to enable it to undertake its duties and achieve its aims. England Basketball's national headquarters is in Sheffield.
England Basketball has a regional structure based on the ten Sport England Regions. Each of these regions has an elected voluntary representative. Together the Executive Board members and these representatives form The Council. The Association also employs field officers in the regions and counties therein to undertake development work.
Within this network of regions there are approximately 800 member clubs. England Basketball produces manuals on coaching, refereeing and table officiating along with various other promotional/information materials for the benefit of members and the media. It works closely with its Area Associations and leading clubs, providing support and advice wherever possible.
