Exeter and District Basketball Association is the umbrella organisation for basketball clubs and leagues in the South West of England and centred on Exeter but including surrounding areas.

Our league involves amateur adult teams from Weymouth to North Devon, Taunton to Torbay and therefore encompasses the counties Devon, Dorset and Somerset.

We currently have three leagues, two men's divisions...and one female division and have been running for more years than can be remembered.

Our main aim is to promote basketball in our area both for the young and old. Our league teams involve players of all ages starting at 14 years.

The 'Exeter League' was formed by Derek Headon in 1960 and comprised initially of several teams just concentrated on the Exeter City area. The league soon became so successful that it was re-named the 'South West' league and encompassed many teams from the areas that the league covers today.
Basketball is the biggest indoor sport in Britain with active participants and the fourth biggest sport overall with 151,500 estimated weekly adult participants. Here in the Exeter and District (although we don’t have a National League team) the number of participants has grown year on year to the highest number (310) since 2003.

Development within basketball is not just in relation to the players, as without officials matches could not take place, incentives to assist with the development of all officials (table, referees and coaches) are in place and opportunities to advance and take courses are available almost every year. The number of coaches within England basketball has increased four-fold in the same period (since 2003) to 2762, referees four-fold to 1645 and table officials eight-fold to 1683. Along with this there are many volunteers, parents and partners that support the Association with hours of time and travel to assist in making the participation of basketball within Exeter and District a worthwhile experience.
Along with the league competition, Cup and Plate competitions take place during the season and the whole season culminates in a Play-Off day. It should be remembered that participation in basketball is not just about the physical side of competing but about the whole social structure linked to clubs.
