Following a meeting of Basketball England’s Leagues and Competitions Advisory Group, it has been decided there will be no promotion and relegation between any National Basketball League divisions following the 2020/21 season.
The group has met after hearing feedback from clubs across the senior and junior leagues and the decision has been made to suspend movement between divisions for one season in a bid to mitigate the challenges caused to the sport by COVID-19.
Hemel Storm Basketball support this decision due to the likely uncertainties that we will have to manage during the course of the season ahead.
Be assured that there is lots of work going on behind the scenes at Storm to ensure we are ready to go, as and when, we are able to. This includes a number of exciting player signings which we will announce in the very near future.
We are also in regular contact with Everyone Active Hemel Hempstead Leisure Centre to ensure when we do return it will be in a safe and enjoyable environment.
Finally, a massive thank you to all of our sponsors during these difficult times for their continued support which is fundamental to us building our 2020/21 programme.
