 Senior National League Officials Fitness Test & Rules Test

Those officials intending to officiate in Senior National League competitions are required to complete a fitness test (bleep test) and rules test.

To prepare referees for these tests, we have made available a manual specifically for basketball referees physical training. You can view that manual by clicking here

Further details about the fitness test can also be found by clicking here

For this year's rules test we have provided you with 100 questions to revise from, both for referees and for table officials. 25 of these questions will then be selected for the test at Conference.

Officials are encouraged to refer to the FIBA Official Interpretations 2014 and the Official Basketball Rules 2014 for help with answering these questions, both of which can be found on the FIBA website by clicking here. Practice test question can also be found on www.basketref.com

The new rules will not feature in the test. The 100 questions will be available soon.

WEBBA Masters 2017

2017 GB Masters Report – From Densil Williamson.

This year’s GB Masters took place on the 17th & 18th June in Manchester. WEBBA entered a team in the 40’s ‘B’ pool, and the 50’s ‘A’ pool. There was unfortunately no representation with the Ladies competition this year.

We would like to thank everyone for their participation in this year’s masters. Especially Chris Staddon who took over the coaching job for the over 40s from Tony Kissoon (who was promoted/demoted depending on your view to the over 50s). Chris nearly lead the over 40s to overall victory in group B in his first year in charge. That was a magnificent effort from everyone. The team was only beaten on points difference and only lost one game narrowly.

There were 4 new comers to the over 40 squad; David Colclough, Christian Hill, Alex James and Andres Tcach. All fitted in well and added to the over 40s squad and enjoyed the social side of things as well. It was also nice to see Andy Harris for returning to the fold as well. Andy has hardly played any basketball this year, but he wanted to play in this tournament and performed well 

There is a special thanks to Nick Watt. Even though Nick was injured on Saturday, he made the effort to be there to support the guys on Sunday

Now to the over 50s squad. This year they had one of best tournaments for a while. They won two games and forced Harlem (including ex New York Knick – Charles Smith – still 6’10”, despite being over 50!) to play their 'A' game all the way through the match with them. It may not be shown by the score, but they could not take their foot of the peddle as WEBBA worked hard to stop them. and to stay in contention. The final game against Bournemouth was special. The last 4 minutes of the final quarter saw WEBBA play some of their best Basketball of the tournament. WEBBA should feel proud of the way these 2 teams represented them in this year’s tournament. The effort was unbelievable, especially after losing Chris Viera to injury in the first game.

Over 40s results on Saturday;

Plymouth 32 - 46 WEBBA

Nottingham 32 - 44 WEBBA

Over 50s results on Saturday;

Celts 32 -  48 WEBBA


Over 40s results on Sunday;

Bournemouth 35 - 39 WEBBA

Checkmate Knights 46 - 40 WEBBA

Over 50s results on Sunday

WEBBA 26 - 52 North London

WEBBA 37 - 20 Bournemouth

Considering the teams had hardly any training together, they produced some magnificent results. It shows how much potential we have in our squads. The aim for next year is to get at least 3-4 training sessions in before the Masters, so at least we can work on a few plays. Also, we would like to recruit some more players for both teams

Our goal is to have WEBBA mentioned in the same breath as Harlem, Louisiana, London, Sheffield. We are now getting a reputation for playing some good basketball and that is down to those representing WEBBA this weekend.

Thanks also to WEBBA for funding new kit for the 50’s.
