The SLBA AGM for 2019 was held on 20th June 2019 at Rosshall Academy, Glasgow. The draft Minutes are here. These will be presented for approval at the next AGM, tentatively scheduled for June 2020.
Following the SLBA Executive Committee meeting last night, we regret to advise that there will be no preseason tournament this year. This is due to a combination of lack of venue and lack of appropriate resources. The SLBA Executive will review this for the 2020-2021 season and advise further.
Please be advised the SLBA AGM will take place on Thursday 20th June, 2019 at Rosshall Academy, Crookston Road, Glasgow at 6.30pm.
Any proposals of changes to the constitution or competition regulations must be received in writing by the League Secretary at least fourteen days prior to the AGM (by close of business on 5th June) and must be proposed and seconded by two SLBA clubs who played in the SLBA leagues in Season 2018-2019.
We would also welcome any nominations for any of the position on the Executive Committee. These must be received in writing by the League Secretary at least fourteen days prior to the AGM (by close of business on 5th June) and must be proposed and seconded by two SLBA clubs who played in the SLBA leagues in Season 2018-2019.
You will find the league entry form for Season 2019-2020 available for download from the Admin menu on the SLBA website. To enter a team(s) into the league for next season please complete and return as directed on the form. The form has been sent to all Clubs who participated in the SLBA Competitions in Season 2018-2019.
Please note that any team that had a game forfeit in Season 2018-2019 must pay an extra Surety Fee of £100 (senior teams) or £50 (youth teams). Please check the result tables on the SLBA website if you are unsure or contact the relevant league coordinator form this season for clarification.
The AGM Agenda will be sent out along with the minutes from last year’s AGM plus any proposed regulation changes at least 7 days before the AGM. At the AGM the current Chairperson will conduct the election of officers and if the current Chairperson is not re-elected then they will stand down and the new Chairperson will take control of the meeting. The quorum needed for decisions at the AGM is seven-member club votes excluding the Executive committee.
All decisions at the AGM must be proposed and seconded and decided by majority vote. The deciding vote in the event of a tie would be with the Chairperson.
Only clubs that have completed the current season and attend the AGM can vote on issues for the coming season. New clubs have no voting powers until after the fixtures meeting in September.
If you have any queries on the above, then please do not hesitate to contact Jim Connor, SLBA League Secretary.

A new book “BASKETBALL in the West of Scotland 1940-1970” has been published by Alex O’hara.
It explains how our great sport got started and goes on to give a season by season account of the clubs, players and characters over three decades, utilising extensive archive research to highlight the triumphs, tragedies and scandals which rocked the sport during those golden years of West basketball. As well as a wealth of detail concerning West leagues and cups, every Scottish Cup Final result is tabled together with a comprehensive listing of West District clubs and the names of players honoured at District and National level.
Nevertheless the book is also a lively read with plenty of fascinating anecdotes to satisfy its readers.
As the sole surviving original founding club, Glasgow University has its own chapter.
All proceeds from sales will be donated to Sense Scotland Charity and the author will donate an additional £10 for every book sold.
Copies may be ordered from email@example.com
Sense Scotland will be launching my book at the Rocks vs Cheshire Phoenix match (Keiron’s penultimate home game) at Emirates Arena on Sunday 14th April at 5pm.
I will be there before the game, accompanied by some Scotland and GB Auld Stars to sell and sign books, and to talk basketball.

The Galway Masters Basketball Association was founded in 2011 by a group of players from various clubs throughout Galway City and County. The aim of the association was to host an International Masters tournament in Galway City.
The inaugural Galway Masters started as a one day tournament in 2011 with 12 teams and 22 games. Over a few short years it has become one of the premier Masters Basketball Tournaments in Europe. In this our 8th year, we are hosting 43 teams (men’s 40s, 50s & 60s and women’s 40s & 50s) with games played over the three days of our tournament. This year the tournament hosts teams from Ireland, England, Scotland, Wales, Spain, Germany, France, The Netherlands, Croatia, Italy, Serbia, Sweden & USA.

Jack was a former chairman of the S.L.B.A., and throughout his life contributed greatly to the sport of Basketball, covering the whole of the Strathclyde area. As a quite formidable player well into his 70’s, he was instrumental in developing the Strathclyde Basketball Masters team. He was a true gentlemen within the sport and was respected by all other players due to his sporting attitude within the game. He developed his player skills as a member of the now famous Smugglers Basketball Club, based in Clydebank, through the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. He played as a centre and although his position required strength and power as well as his height advantage, he displayed a skilful soft touch with his devastating short range jump shot.
Taking over as Chairman of the SLBA in its early years, he drove Basketball with a passion and an enthusiasm normally reserved for much younger men. He continued to support the SLBA after retiring from his post and often attended Strathclyde finals events, presenting trophies and talking up the game of basketball with other visiting dignitaries and basketball friends alike. He experienced coaching at International level in 1973 when he was appointed head coach to the under 18 men’s team. He was a great ambassador for the sport and will be sadly missed but never forgotten.
