At “The Black Prince Trust” (BPT) we believe that basketball has the power to make a difference to communities geographically around “The Hub”. Situated within Lambeth’s Princes ward, bounded by the Thames between Lambeth Bridge and Vauxhall Bridge within easy reach of both Vauxhall and Waterloo stations. The Hub is home to Lambeth’s premier basketball facility.
The Regal and Jordon courts are already well used by the basketball communities in and around Lambeth. On site management looked at ways to develop existing community, charitable and corporate activity supported by key partners to benefit the internal and external growth of basketball within Lambeth and the sounding areas. Working alongside key specialist partners BPT Basketball will develop a clear player pathway from free community based activity into structured competitive basketball meeting the needs of the player and the community.
In line with the Basketball foundation’s response to the DCMS A New Strategy for Sport: Consultation Paper we also believe the basketball is uniquely positioned to make a difference to communities across Lambeth. Because of the sport’s popularity with young people and those in the lower socio-economic groups.
