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 Plymouth and therefore encompasses the counties Devon, Dorset and Somerset.

We currently have four leagues, three 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.

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.

Devon Peelers and Broadclyst Meet Again
Oct 5, 2016, 6:21 pm

Devon Peelers and Broadclyst met for the second time in 3 weeks, unfortunatley for Peelers the result was the same!

The first quarter was all square with Broadclyst pipping it 15 - 16, the second quarter was however a completely different 'kettle of fish', despite Broadclyst being in foul trouble from the 4th minute from their more aggressive defence Peelers were unable to take advantage, and Broadclyst pulled out the lead to 15 points - 22 - 37.

A decent come back in the final two quarters where Peelers won both did not gain them a win, the final score was 61 - 77.


Exeter University 3 vs Tiverton Titans
Oct 5, 2016, 6:14 pm


Exeter 54 - Tiverton 18

The first half was a very close contest. Gareth Taylor-Southall and Shane Barrell headed up a strong defensive play for Tiverton forcing Exeter to shoot from the outside. The play battled back and forth through the 1st half with both teams scoring equally.

The second half was a different story. Exeter came out strong and opened up a 30 point lead by the end of the 3rd quarter. Tiverton’s fatigue was starting to show with the whole team struggling to score. The younger, fitter Exeter team Maintained pressure and came out on top.
