2020 Play-Off Finals Group Provisional Bookings


If you haven’t taken your school group to a basketball event before, why not give it a try? This is the sport of fast-paced entertainment and fun – simply expect to be entertained and have a day out that will live in the memory forever!

Tickets are priced from just £18 and we have some fabulous deals for groups including complimentary tickets for organisers, a provisional (no commitment) booking process, and free basketball equipment for larger parties.


You can provisionally reserve tickets, without obligation or financial commitment. Reserve now to secure the best available seats, and you can change or cancel your booking at any time prior to confirmation, without cost. For every 10 tickets you purchase, we’ll give you one free so that teachers and event organisers can attend free of charge.

Purchasers in other bands will receive 12 free Molten basketballs (also available for Premium/Band A purchasers if preferred).
