The secret part of this growth undoubtedly the great promotional support for years led from the Department of Sports, the City of Denia. Setting a "symbolic price" of € 25 as annual tuition, to train and participate in the local league. This promotional success coupled with the great work of all the coordinators of schools and especially the work of the coaches in the day.
To make this possible has also helped the work from Dénia Basketball Club, organizer of the competition and advocacy and administration. The current size of the Local Basketball League is in Denia and to value it as one of the most important of Valencia.
