The Great Britain women's national basketball team is the national team for Great Britain in basketball. The current governing body for the Great Britain team was formed by the national basketball organisations of England (England Basketball), Scotland (basketballscotland) and Wales (Basketball Wales) on 1 December 2005 in order to provide a competitive team for international competition. This structure does not include the basketball association of Northern Ireland; Northern Irish players normally represent the Ireland national women's basketball team, though they are also eligible to compete for Great Britain and Northern Ireland at the Olympic Games.
