MBA40 is Manchester's fun, friendly and relaxed weekly basketball night for those of us who've reached the big 4-0.


We are committed to make it easy for players of all standards to get back into team sport, often after a break of many (many) years. We welcome everyone who wants to come along and play, get a little fitter, have some fun and not get hung up by missing a lay-up...


We run three sessions that cater for everyone from complete beginners to seasoned players:




MBA40 ‘Starter’ in association with the Manchester Giants



Tailor made for you to put a smile on your face as you progress from 'couch to 5 on 5 basketball' in just a few weeks.


The session: a combination of easy basketball drills suitable for everyone and the stretches & exercises that make you feel fitter.


Perfect for you: if you have barely held a basketball since school and the last time you ran was to catch last orders!


The 2nd season of MBA40 Starter starts on January 30th and will take place every Tuesday 8-9pm. Each session is just £6 and there is no commitment.

MBA40 ‘Classic’

The ‘original and best’ over-40s basketball night, now in its 11th season!


The session: an even split of stretches, fun coaching drills and short, full court games.


Perfect for you: if you know the difference between a pick & roll and a layup, but you can’t remember when you last did either!


Every Tuesday from 7-8pm. Just £6 per session with no commitment.




MBA40 ‘Scrimmage’

A friendly, relaxed full four-quarter game for the more seasoned player.


Perfect for you: if you play or have played until recently, and just fancy a slower pace of play.


Every Tuesday from 8-9pm. Just £6 per session with no commitment.





MBA40 sessions are every Tuesday from 7-8pm & 8-9pm at the National Basketball Performance Centre.
