Birmingham returns to the British Basketball League
Birmingham Knights mark the welcome return of a team and club to the BBL (British Basketball League) for the city of Birmingham. In addition to entering a team in the BBL, the Birmingham Knights are also focused on giving back to the local area through the development and delivery of a community programme to encourage more people to get involved and start playing the sport. This includes providing free training and activity programmes for local youngsters such as Basketball in the City and basketball coaching awards.
The team is owned by the Solihull based sport business Oaks Consultancy who, in addition to building a successful team, is also working with local partners to develop and increase interest and participation in basketball within Birmingham. Oaks are proud to have the opportunity to work at both the elite and grass roots level of this fantastic sport in its local area.
The team will begin competing in the 2013/14 British Basketball League this September please visit www.birminghamknights.co.uk for further information.
