The Steve Lallament Memorial Trophy is presented each season in memory of a former referee. Steve Lallament was passionate about his refereeing, and refereed in the Wessex Area, for the Army and at National League level. He suddenly passed away several years ago, but it was testament to his passion for refereeing that he died whilst on a treadmill, trying to regain his fitness, in order to return to refereeing, following a previous health issue. To honour his memory, the Steve Lallament Memorial Trophy was created. There are three of these awards; an England Basketball award for National League referees; an Army award for Army referees and the Wessex award for Wessex referees.

The Wessex award is presented to a referee who has shown enthusiasm, commitment, dedication and a willingness to help. The award is not simply presented at the discretion of the Wessex Committee, but is voted for by the Wessex Area members.

The Steve Lallament Memorial Trophy for the last 2 seasons has not been awarded due to lack of votes this season it has been awarded to Steve Shephard.


Referees are reminded as per the referee's meeting and numerous communication throughout the season that NO licence entered on the scoresheet means NO Play! If scoresheets are not checked correctly by referees then referees will be held responsible and disiplinary action including fines maybe actioned. It is in your interest that this small and easy to manage rule is carried out!


To ensure that all parties are informed of disciplinary decisions. all disciplinary reports will be posted on the Bulletins and Disciplinary page.


If you are new to this area and interested in joining a thriving league and are qualified then download the referees form here and forward it to the Webmaster and the Officials manager.


Referees allocation will be conducted differently this season as Wessex Basketball will be utilising the services of Tex Solutions. Initial impressions are that the system is very good and user friendly and provides the officials with a bit more buy in with their availablity and enables the officials manager greater flexibility in appointing officials please check you emails regularly and keep your availabilty up to date.

Please take time to read the new disciplinary system that is being adopted by the league.

If you have a disciplinary matter in a game to deal with please fill out the form below and send it into the Officials Secretary.
