2018 Cup Final Group Provisional Bookings

FREE GIFTS FOR YOUR GROUP

We have some fabulous deals for groups including free kit or basketballs (see below), complimentary tickets for organisers, a provisional (no commitment) booking process, reduced ticket booking fees and now a half day coaching session with a BBL player or community coach!

In our experience, attendance at the event leads to a significant increase in enthusiasm within the sport and the gifts are geared towards helping improve participation.

We are delighted to offer groups purchasing 45 tickets (a coach party) or more in Band A a set of basketball kit (12 vests/shorts). Those purchasing 45 or more tickets in Band B or C will receive twelve basketballs (also available to Band A purchasers if preferred).  Alternatively choose to have a BBL player or coach attend your school/club for a half day coaching session with a BBL player or community coach.

Qualifying groups can claim their Free Gifts once payment has been made for their tickets - the gifts will be dispatched post the event.

If you haven't been to a basketball event why not give it a try? This is the sport of razzmatazaz and fun, simply expect to be entertained and have a day out that will live in the memory forever!
