2018 Westminster Mid Season Tournament

Introduction to Annual Event

The London Basketball Association is happy to announce the fourth ‘City of Westminster Mid-Season Tournaments’ for both girls and boys in secondary schools within Westminster. This platform will allow a plethora of teams and hundreds of individuals to take part in real basketball fixtures and experience everything that comes with real life game situations. It’s going to be 2 jam packed days of basketball and the winners of each group will progress into the ‘Battle of the Borough’s! As usual LBA will be collaborating with the Westminster Sports Unit, the American School in London and London Youth to make this happen, and will organise qualified referees and table officials, who are going to be younger people who we got qualified from different schools and will get to see them in action, as well as trophies and medals. We will also be live streaming the finals! Make sure you keep this website bookmarked as it will show the schedule for the day. Once the day is over, make sure you check out the LBA Facebook page, Instagram and website to view all of the days action. From the great success we’ve already had in our school competitions you can rest assured that students participating will have the experience of a lifetime!
