Basketball England Insurance Update

Due to recent changes by Basketball Englands (BE) insurance providers, an amendment to BE's current procedures for insurance claims has been requested that you should be aware of.

For any and all incidents that occur which could give rise to a claim, please make sure that an Accident Form (Word Document) is completed and attached with your claim so that full details of the incident can be provided to our insurers. Should a claim be forthcoming that does not contain an Accident Form, it will still be considered but is significantly more likely to be declined.

If you are a club secretary, please ensure the information within this email is passed on to all members that may be responsible for training, games and sessions within your club. If you have any questions on the above, please contact the Membership department.

Code of Ethics and Conduct

As a general reminder to all members, you should regularly review the Basketball England Code of Ethics and Conduct (Word Document) and Social Media Policy (Word Document).

If you have any questions about this matter, please contact Basketball England.

Sponsorship Opportunities

MABL are looking to offer local companies the opportunity to sponsor our league for the 2016/2017 Season.

Benefits of Sponsorship

Basketball is one of the few sports in the UK where participation levels are increasing year in year out. Last year the number of people playing basketball rose by 21,800 to 152,900 each week (source Basketball England).

In Manchester and the North West in particular the sport is extremely popular, with several professional and semi-professional teams in the area and with the development of the new Basketball Performance Centre at Belle Vue all having a positive effect on the sport within the region.

By sponsoring MABL potential sponsors will become involved in one of the fastest growing sports in the UK and gaining access to the potential that the popularity of the sport can provide.
