The Sheffield Basketball League (SBL) is a recreational basketball league based in Sheffield at the English Institute of Sport (EIS).
The SBL provides opportunities for adults and young people to get involved in basketball by joining teams and playing basketball in an organised and safe environment. The SBL is the only recreational adult basketball league in Sheffield and we have teams enter from all over Yorkshire.
Games take place at EIS-Sheffield and All Saints School and tip off at 7pm or later from Wednesday to Friday.
The league also provides opportunities for people to become involved in refereeing or table officiating.
The league is affiliated with England Basketball and all games are officiated by qualified officials registered with the governing body.
The Sheffield Basketball League currently conisists of three divisions. New teams normally start in Division 3, but occasionally teams can be entered higer in the structure based on previous experience.
The SBL also runs Cup and Plate knockout competitions during the season. The format of these competitions can change from season to season, but the principle is to allow teams to have at least two more games after the season is finished. The draw for the Cup and Plate is normally completed at the start of February to ensure that teams have prior warning to their commitments to the competition.
Once the regular season finishes in May, the SBL organises a summer league competition which is more informal than the regular season and encourages new teams to enter and get a feel for competitive basketball in an organised and safe environment.
