Hello TML Members,

The Exec Committee have been made aware of delays in getting Officials properly Licensed with Basketball England. This is due to the new regulation that ALL Refs and Table Officials MUST get a DBS Enhanced Clearance AND also pass a Safeguarding course ( 3 hours On-line )regardless of the level of games that they will Officiate in.

To enable more time for this to happen it has been decided to delay the start of the TML season by one-week i.e first fixture will be Sept 27th 2021. ( The published “draft” week 1 will be re-dated to later in the season )

The TML Affiliation League Meeting is still scheduled for Tuesday September14th 2021. Venue and time to be advised.   Neil Rogers (Treasurer )  will be advising TEAMS how they are to pay their £60 League fee BEFORE that date.


For Basketball England Membership and Licensing our Registrar, Neil Rogers, has produced a guidance document which can be found on the TML Website via this link .

Tynemet Basketball League | league-resources    view  “2021-22 Registration Process” document.

If you have further queries, then you should contact Neil on registrar@tynemetbasketball.co.uk 

Once you have your BE membership sorted then you can proceed to Affiliate to the TyneMet League. (This is free but essential if you want to participate in anyway – Play /Officiate/Coach)

The TML Website will close for maintenance from Friday 3rd Sept to Sunday 5th Sept inclusive.

So from Monday 6th September you MUST  login and Affiliate with your chosen Team. Neil’s Guide advises how to do that.


From now on until everyone Affiliates to the TML Website again there will not be any more Personal communications like this one .

It is essential that ALL CLUBS AND TEAMS make sure that the Fixtures Sec ,    Phil Darling, has your correct Contact details . Tell him on fixtures@tynemetbasketball.co.uk   NOW PLEASE .

The NEWS feature on the TML Website ( and Facebook and Twitter ) will also carry messages regarding Meetings etc . Please read them
