KLeague 2016 Basketball League


About KLeague


In 2007, a group of professionals in KPMG started a basketball league with the objective to promote work-life balance, cross-department and cross-function interaction as well as providing a platform for the KPMG alumni to stay connected with the firm.  The league is sponsored by myLife and over 300 participants coming together to play each year.  This season, being the 9th season, there are 13 teams joining and will be playing in a new playoff format that will hopefully be more exciting and fun.

Each overtime will consist of a two (2) minute period with "stop time" for the last minute.

Unused time outs in the first half can be carried over to the second half with a maximum of three (3) time outs being called in the second half for each team. These time outs do not carry over into overtime. In each overtime period, each team receives one (1) time out regardless of the usage of time outs in the game prior to the overtime period.

3. Double bonus free throws will be in effect after the fifth (5th) team foul of each quarter. Players may enter the free throw lane on

4. Each team must wear uniforms that are of the same color and with distinct numbers designated on the front or back.

5. Each team must begin the game with five (5) players and each team is allowed to have maximum of twelve (12) players on the game roster each game. Only THREE alumni are allowed to on the game roster each game. At any time throughout the match only TWO alumni are allowed to play on the court. Any team found violating the rule will be considered to have forfeited the game and the opposing team will be awarded a win with a 20-0 score. Any team found violating the rule will be reported to the KLeague Committee and other penalties may follow at the discretion of the KLeague Committee and/or Master Club.

6. Further to rule 5, if a team does not have five players to start the game, that team will consider to have forfeited the game with a loss and a 20-0 will be awarded to the winning team. If during the game a team has less than five players due to injuries and/or disqualifications, that team has the option to continue the game less than five players or to forfeit the game with the score at the time being the final score of that game. If a team has less than four players, the game would be considered forfeited by that team with a loss awarded and score at the time being the final score of that game.

7. Teams are required to be present 15 minutes prior at their designated court, as game times are only approximate. Following ten minutes (or earlier should the referees and/or league admin deemed suitable), the game is a forfeit.

8. Each player is allowed FIVE (5) personal fouls and on the FIFTH (5th) foul that player will be disqualified. After fouling out, a player may not re-enter the game. A team may continue to play with less than FIVE (5) players; however, once a team has three players or less, the game will end and the team will forfeit the game.
