The Pro Classic 2018
The Pro Classic (TPC) Basketball Summer League provides London with high-level, competitive, and entertaining basketball in a fan and family friendly environment. TPC allows players and spectators alike to enjoy organised basketball during the off season. This year’s League will be held at the Rough House of Fun and Dunking – Brixton Recreation Centre.

TPC Basketball League is one of the premier competitive summer basketball leagues in the UK. The competition aims to fill the empty void of summer basketball. It will feature current and former professional, international, BBL, EBL and EABL players. Teams in the competition will play weekly. All games will be recorded and officiated by qualified Basketball England Referees.

This league is just about basketball. Organisers want the basketball enthusiasts to enjoy the game in its purest form.

Teams
There are 8 teams in the league. 6 teams are pre-selected and 2 teams (Team Pro and Team Classic) will drafted with free agents by the TPC organisers.

The league will be divided into 2 conferences – East and West. Each conference will be made up of 4 teams. Each team will play 3 games in their conference before TPC Playoffs.

Each team is allocated a Team Manager. Each team can have a maximum of 12 registered players and a minimum of 6.

Players
Players that are not drafted onto pre-selected teams can still play in The Pro Classic. These players are free agents and will be drafted on to a team by the league organisers. Due to an often-high number of free agent applicants, TPC may have to conduct a trial to make the final player selections. If a trial(s) date is organised, you will be informed as soon as possible.

 

Guest Players
Each team has a maximum of 2 guest player spots. Guest players must be registered and cannot swap teams once they have competed in a game. In order for guest players to compete in the TPC playoffs, they are required to have played at least one conference match.
