West Bearden Basketball League


For half a century, the WBBL has been solely dedicated to basketball. Our league provides year-round basketball opportunities for young athletes aged 5-17. As one of East Tennessee's largest recreational basketball programs, we boast over 250 teams and more than 1800 boys and girls participating in our WBBL Rec League Season. We take pride in offering independent boys' and girls' leagues across all age groups.

At the WBBL, we cultivate a culture centered on sportsmanship, education, and basketball development. Our aim is to enhance the success of players and coaches both on and off the court through the game of basketball.

Recognizing the importance of both enjoyment and hard work, we incorporate these values into all our programs. Parents, players, and coaches consistently choose us as their Knoxville basketball organization because of our dedication to their needs and our well-established reputation for sportsmanship.

The WBBL is highly interested in developing basketball players and a life time basketball enjoyment, but also coaches and referees. There is a pathway at the WBBL to become a youth coach and/or referee. The WBBL is always looking for the next leaders of Knoxville's basketball community to come from our older teenagers and young adults.
