The Melton Basketball Association (MBA) is a not for profit sporting organisation promoting the game of basketball throughout the City of Melton.The MBA actively promotes basketball and provides the Melton Community the opportunity to be involved in all levels of basketball. This ranges from our ‘Aussie Hoops’ programs for beginners to junior and senior domestic competitions. In 2015 we had 13 teams competing in the VJBL representative competition for junior basketballers. Of the 13 teams, the 4 of our Junior Thoroughbreds teams that made the Grand Final in their respective divisions went on to win the championship! We have a Youth League Men’s team that competes in YLM2 competition. Last season, the team just missed out on the finals however season 2016 is looking very promising with the return of at least 4 of our home grown players returning to take the team to the next level. We expect to be very competitive and would like to think that we can win this Championship. Our Division 1 Big V Men’s Team the Melton Thoroughbreds won the Championship in only their second season in that Division, having won the Division 2 Championship in 2013.'
Growth in our association is strong with the addition of our 7th Domestic Club last season, and the addition of another 2 court facility to our competition schedule in the past year, taking our total to 5 courts being utilised for Domestic Competition.
2015 was an exciting and rewarding year for the MBA which saw enormous success across our many competitions with strong growth a major indicator that we are heading in the right direction.
