Coronavirus Update

Here at London Greenhouse Pioneers, the health and safety of participants, coaches and spectators is of paramount importance.

Following guidance issued on Friday 13th March by Basketball England (NGB) we advise all club members, players, parents and participants that all club activities are hereby suspended for the next 14 days. This includes team practice sessions, scheduled games and all community sessions.

This is a decision that we have not taken lightly and has been made with full consideration of both government and sporting bodies advice.

We will update you all with further information as soon as we are able to advise further following advice from the appropriate authorities.

Basketball England has also taken the decision to suspend all affiliated basketball activity for an initial two-week period because of the coronavirus outbreak. This action will include National Leagues and competitions, England national teams, Academy leagues, Talent programmes including Aspire, affiliated local leagues and Basketball England education courses.

The suspension of all activity commenced from 9am on Saturday, March 14 – March 28, or further notice.

London Greenhouse Pioneers basketball team is our community basketball club. We have strong links to schools and youth clubs across London and our aim is to develop young people into better basketball players.

Our coaches have over 60 years of experience between them coaching young people aged 5-18 (in Under 14, Under 16 and Under 18 teams) and also our Senior Team.

New players start by attending the Greenhouse Pioneers local league teams and training sessions where they can learn new skills or work on improvements to their game.

Players are also able to represent the Greenhouse Pioneers in a Basketball England National League, where all of our teams compete.

Players are chosen to play for these teams based on three things rather than just ability;
