    The top three teams from each group will then advance to the Second Round, where teams will be split into four groups of six with the top three teams in each group qualifying for the World Cup.

  2. Who is in the GB squad?

    The 24-man squad is built around a core group of veteran players that include Dan Clark, Ashley Hamilton, Myles Hesson, Dwayne Lautier-Ogunleye, Ben Mockford, Luke Nelson, Teddy Okereafor, and Gabe Olaseni. The selection of those eight along with GB regulars Gareth Murray, Tarik Phillip, Jacob Round, and Ovie Soko (finished third in Love Island) sees all 12 players from February’s EuroBasket 2022 Qualifying window named in the 24.

    Ironman Okereafor will set a new British record as the most consecutive international games played if he plays against Greece by making his 50th straight appearance.

    The team will once again be led by Marc Steutel, with Head Coach Nate Reinking absent due to his role as assistant coach with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

    Basketball can be played by people of any age, size or ability and with thousands of outdoor courts across the country - where you can play for free - there's plenty of places to practice if you don't fancy competing with a team.

    • Basketball is a fun, fast and stamina-building sport with players burning up to 600 calories an hour.
    • The sport is a mixture of dribbling, passing and shooting which helps improve balance and co-ordination.
    • With clubs across the country, it's a great way to meet new people and develop teamwork and communication skills and many clubs offer a variety of social events away from the court.

    How do I start?
