Noble Solicitors backs the Basketball petition
On December 18th 2012, UK Sport announced record funding for the 4 year cycle in the run up to the Rio 2016 games, however, British Basketball was one of the organisations who's funding was cut to zero.
There is no sport in the UK that has bigger potential for growth and improvement than basketball. It is the number 2 sport in the world for a reason, and the UK needs a profile national team programme to succeed.
We call on the government to get UK Sport to reconsider their cut to British Basketball's funding and make basketball a funded sport again.
Please can you follow this link to sign BOTH petitions; one is to support the funding at grass roots and the second is support the elite end with British Basketball.
