Our basketball club

Due to Government lockdown, venue closure and Basketball England suspension of NBL Junior Basketball until January 2021, London Greenhouse Pioneers (LGP) club training sessions are postponed until January 2021.

Stay Healthy and Safe

London Greenhouse Pioneers basketball team is our community basketball club. We have strong links with education establishments and local youth clubs across London. Our aim is to help develop a pathway for young people through basketball to become confident and skilful players.


Our committed coaching staff and volunteers have over 70 years of experience between them in coaching young people from age 5-18 (in Under 12 mixed, Under 14, Under 16 and Under 18 teams) and our Senior Team. New players are always welcomed and start by attending the Greenhouse Pioneers local teams and training sessions, where they will be taught to be team players whilst developing their individual skills and techniques to help improve their game, plan their pathway to reach their goals. Players are selected and encouraged to represent the Greenhouse Pioneers in Basketball England National League (NBL), where our teams compete in both league and Cup competitions. Players are chosen to play each match based on three things rather than just ability;

Behaviour           – on and off the basketball court

Commitment     – attending practice and punctuality (being on time)

Effort                    – the amount of effort they put in during practice and being a team player
