As London's only professional basketball team, the Lions are committed to making a positive impact on the community, both on and off the court. We have established productive and effective partnerships with members of our community, and we are always looking for new ways to engage with fans and give back.We believe diversity, opportunity, and courage are essential to a thriving community. We are outspoken and unafraid to stand up for what we believe in, and we use our platform to drive social change. We look to improve the well-being of our community by preparing individuals for the future and fostering unity.

Some of the ways we are making a difference in the community:

●    We host free basketball clinics for kids in underserved neighbourhoods.
●    Partner with strong community establishments like Badu and Greenhouse
●    We donate tickets to local charities and organisations.
●    Offer workplace opportunities
●    We support local initiatives that promote diversity and inclusion.


We help promote and grow the sport of basketball while actively engaging with the local community. Partnering with The Black Prince Trust, we lead basketball sessions to inspire local participation. As London's only professional basketball team, we run summer camps for kids aged 8-16, offering them a chance to train with our Lions superstars. Additionally, our collaboration with Serpentine Galleries and Tower Hamlets Council has led to the creation of a vibrant basketball court, serving as a community hub with coaching sessions and tournaments for the first 6 weeks before being gifted to the community.
