The 2018 BBL Slam Dunk Final will take place at Arena Birmingham on Sunday 28 January as part of a spectacular line-up at the British Basketball Cup Finals.
Five of the six participants have now been confirmed for the event, which will take place between the 2018 WBBL Cup Final and 2018 BBL Cup Final.
They will be eager to impress the judging panel with their dunking skills and also a crowd of up to 10,000 inside the Arena, who will all give their own verdict.
We are thrilled to announce that Pro:Direct Basketball, one of the UK’s largest online basketball retailers, will be working with the BBL for this year’s competition.
It is hoped that the partnership, which includes advertising at the event and the provision of the competition prize, will strengthen the relationship between Pro:Direct Basketball and the BBL for the future of the UK game.
Mike Price, Partnerships Manager for Pro:Direct says: “Pro:Direct Basketball is proud to work with the BBL, and we are hoping that this mutually beneficial partnership will help us and the BBL connect better than ever with the passionate and savvy players and fans of the UK game.”
There will be lots to love this year, with all six confirmed dunkers representing BBL club teams.
Kiefer Douse of Leicester Riders is a big fans’ favourite and his popularity is flung wider than just Leicester, since he is a regular filler of the league’s highlights reel.
The same can be said of Bristol Flyers star Brandon Boggs, who is known for throwing down the hammer in transition and the guard will also revel in some south-west rivalry with Denzel Ubario of Plymouth Raiders.
Austin Rettig of Manchester Giants is also looking to make a splash, along with Dirk Williams, who shot to global fame over the weekend with what is considered to be the best BBL dunk of all time (see below).
