Welcome

Welcome to the Manchester Area Basketball League (MABL) website. Currently we have 3 Men's Divisions and 1 Womens Division incorporating teams from all over Greater Manchester and the surrounding areas.


New BE Membership Portal

Can all teams and officials please ensure they are registered via the new Basketball England Membership Portal well in advance of the MABL 2019-2020 season starting on W/C 30th September (Cup preliminary round W/C 23rd Sept).

The process for registering has changed significantly from previous years.

For the 2019-2020 season there will be no MABL member cards due to the new BE Membership Licence having Photo ID.

Sponsorship Opportunities

MABL are looking to offer local companies the opportunity to sponsor our league.

Benefits of Sponsorship

Basketball is one of the few sports in the UK where participation levels are increasing year in year out. Last year the number of people playing basketball rose by 21,800 to 152,900 each week (source Basketball England).

In Manchester and the North West in particular the sport is extremely popular, with several professional and semi-professional teams in the area and with the development of the new Basketball Performance Centre at Belle Vue all having a positive effect on the sport within the region.

By sponsoring MABL potential sponsors will become involved in one of the fastest growing sports in the UK and gaining access to the potential that the popularity of the sport can provide.
