ABOUT US

SHAPING IPSWICH BASKETBALL

Perseverance • Achieve • Encourage • Improve

Ipswich Basketball Association (IBA) has a long and proud history of being involved in the Ipswich community. We pride ourselves on being a family orientated club and strive to nurture that type of environment where people look after one another, feel valued and safe. A place where cultural diversity is respected, gender equity is promoted and families with children are appreciated and supported.

IBA's positive culture and fighting spirit helped to quickly recover from the devastating floods of 2011, which inundated Llewellyn Stadium (formerly Ipswich Basketball Stadium), along with much of Ipswich city. The massive flood recovery effort was a testimony of the unique and resilient IBA community.

In recognition of achievements to date, IBA has received the 2012 Basketball Queensland Large Association of the Year award.

In addition to being a Good Sports Club, Level 2, IBA is also actively promoting values of charity, team work, family and caring for each other.
