I would like information about the money given to Basketball England by Sport England and how it is spent
We cannot speak on behalf of Sport England as to the reasons for the way they allocate funds. There is information on Sport England’s website on their work with National Governing Bodies here.
We have been allocated funding for 2017-21, and are currently working on our strategy for delivery during this period. When we have new information about the programmes and our strategy for 2017-2021 it will be available on our website.
I would like information about the popularity of basketball in the UK
We recommend reading the All Party Parliamentary Group on Basketball’s 2014 inquiry report, which outlines a lot of the existing evidence on this
You should also explore Sport England’s Active People tool to look at participation in basketball across different demographics over the last decade.
The Government’s Taking Part survey will tell you about participation among children under 16.
Basketball is a popular sport to play in school, so the Youth Sport Trust’s National PE and School Sport Survey may also be a useful resource.
Sport England has released the first findings from their new Active Lives survey here.
I would like to send my survey to Basketball England members
Under the Data Protection Act we cannot provide you with contact details of our members.
An option could be for us to send the survey on your behalf. We do not generally promote external surveys, but you are welcome to send your survey to our Insight Analyst Laura Holloway for her to review and decide if it’s something we could be involved in.
I would like to interview a member of Basketball England staff
We get many requests from students for interviews or to take part in questionnaires. Unfortunately, as we are only a small organisation we do not have capacity take part.
