Play | MBA Over 40s

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

Running in association with Manchester Giants, MBA40 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 (beginners)
MBA40 Classic (intermediate)
MBA40 Scrimmage (advanced)

These sessions are very popular and signing up is advised. To enquire about joining in just email

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!

Date: Every Tuesday
Time: 8-9m
Venue: The National Basketball Performance Centre, Kirkmanshulme Lane, M12 4TF
