The Welsh national basketball team is the basketball side that represents Wales in international competition. They are organised by Basketball Wales, the sport's governing body in Wales.

In 2005, Wales, along with England Basketball and basketballscotland combined forces to form the Great Britain national basketball team, with the target goal to field a competitive team capable of winning medals at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. England's and Scotland's affiliation to FIBA will end on 30 September 2016, but Wales did not sign the agreement with the British Basketball Federation and FIBA.[1]

International appearances

Wales has yet to appear in a major international basketball event. Currently, Wales is set in FIBA Europe's Division C. The best result there so far has been 2nd place in 2002.[3]

Wales co-hosted the 1978 Commonwealth Basketball Championships with England and Scotland. This was the first such Commonwealth Basketball competition. Wales were coached by former player Paul Kinninmont and Andy Henderson, whilst being managed by Ralph Wills. Despite losing several key players to injury and unavailability, Wales performed creditably both in the pool matches in Cardiff and in the finals at Coventry
