London Lightning

The London Lightning has been a proud member of the National Basketball League of Canada since its inaugural season in 2011. The 2017-18 season marks the seventh season of the NBL-C. The Lightning have won three out of the six championship titles so far, including the most recent 2016-17 title.

 After a rocky start to the season at 3-3 last year the team went on to shatter league and team records and won the 2016-17 Championship over the Halifax Hurricanes at home in game 6 of the finals. They became the winningest team in NBLC history with a record of 46-7 overall.  Lightning team members were awarded regular season MVP, Playoff MVP, and multiple All-Star awards.

The Lightning franchise along with the NBL of Canada are putting basketball on the Canadian map and are gaining recognition from around the world as a premier team in a premier league that demonstrates high-level basketball as a viable option for professional athletes looking to further their careers.
