HISTORY OF THE ALTONA BAY BASKETBALL ASSOCIATION
Formed in 1990 the Altona Bay Basketball Association (ABBA) moved into "The Swamp" at the Altona Sports Centre in 1992.
The Association now boasts teams both Junior & Senior Domestic covering the length and breadth of the City of Hobsons Bay. Since 1992 the Association has set up and fostered a number of Junior Domestic clubs as well as offering Senior domestic teams/clubs competitions to play in. Domestic Basketball is now played at the 6 court Centre on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
Since October 1993 we have hosted an Annual Junior Domestic Tournament. For the first seven years it was known as the Hobson's Bay Junior Domestic Tournament and for the last three the Great Western Junior Domestic Tournament.
The Junior and Senior Championship program "Altona Gators" currently has Junior, Senior and Youth development teams with an opportunity to grow all programs. Junior Championship teams compete against associations throughout Victoria each Friday night within the Victorian Junior Basketball League (VJBL). Senior and Youth development teams compete in the BigV Basketball league.
