Bermuda national basketball team represents Bermuda in international competitions. It is administrated by the Bermuda Basketball Association (BBA).[2]

Despite Bermuda's very small population, its basketball team has qualified for the Caribbean Basketball Championship twice. At this event, Bermuda left behind competition from countries such as Guyana, which has more than ten times Bermuda's population size.
