Our basketball participants will appear on CBBC!

Basketball England today announced that two of the recent participants in their joint venture with the NBA, the Jr.NBA Basketball England League, have been chosen by the BBC to appear on ‘Match of the Day Kickabout’, a children’s TV show regularly broadcast on CBBC.


Platanos College and Raines Foundation School were selected from the newly formed Jr.NBA Basketball England League to represent the recent NBA finalists, Cleveland Caverliers and Golden State Warriors. Tune in to CBBC on Saturday 4th July to see basketball players from both schools tell the story of the 2015 NBA Finals by recreating the best scenes from the exciting and pivotal Game 6 that took place in June.

Match of the Day Kickabout is a British children’s television programme currently presented by Tyler West. The show features special guests, funny quizzes for forfeits and its own version of the popular TV show ‘Cribs’, with a footballer answering questions about his team-mates, and showing a particular skill or trick. The show follows the format of a football match, with two halves and a break for half time refreshments. The show also visits other sports each week such as cricket, rugby and tennis.

Tune in to CBBC on Saturday 4th July @ 8:30am to catch this exciting episode of Match of the Day Kickabout!
