The Essex Rebels is a big family formed of numerous teams from men’s, women’s and multiple junior teams.
Entering the professional Women’s British Basketball League (WBBL) for the first time in 2018, the Essex Rebels women’s team have a successful history as previous winners of the Basketball England National Cup and League Division 1.
Comprised of inspirational role models, our players are drawn from across the World, as well as young players from the Basketball England talent pathway. The majority of our players are also combining training and matches with undergraduate or postgraduate studies, supported within our dual-career pathway to achieve their potential on and off the court.
Having secured back-to-back promotions in the 2018-19 and 2019-20 seasons, the Essex Rebels men will play in the Basketball England National League Division 1 for the first time in 2020-21.
The Essex Rebels men’s second team also play in National League Division 3, providing a development opportunity for young players making their early entry in to senior competition.
The Essex Rebels Junior Basketball Club was formed in 2019, with activities and matches taking place at the Essex Sport Arena, allowing young players to rub shoulders with positive role models in the senior teams, helping to inspire them to pursue their own dual-careers.
Run in conjunction with the Sigma Trust of schools across Colchester and Tendring, the Essex Rebels Academy provides a dual-career opportunity for young basketball players to combine their sixth form studies with training and matches at the Essex Sport Arena as part of the Essex Rebels family. Players are prepared for progression on to university study, as well as on to senior Essex Rebels teams.
