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 two sessions that cater for everyone from complete beginners to seasoned players:







MBA40 ‘Classic’

The ‘original and best’ over-40s basketball night, now in its 21st 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 ‘Classic Full Court' and 'Masters Scrimmages’

Two levels of friendly, relaxed full four-quarter games for a) the rusty, and b) for the more seasoned player.


Perfect for you: if you play or have played in the past, and fancy a non-competitive, 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.
