What Is Maxibasketball?

Maxibasketball is a competitive category for players retired from regular basketball, and who wish to continue playing in high performance competitions against players in their age group.

In the UK, maxibasketball is also referred to as ‘masters’ basketball but you will find the term maxibasketball more commonly used at international events in Europe and worldwide.

Maxibasketball is divided into competition categories which rise in 5-year increments, e.g. 30+, 35+, 40+, 45+ years, and so on. The world governing body is the International Federation of Maxibasketball

The international federation is responsible for organizing maxi basketball competitions and events in every continent for players aged 30+ years to 75+ years. Check this out for a look at what they deliver – Let’s Play!

There are 350,000 active maxibasketball players worldwide, and there are individual governing body representatives in more than 50 countries, who are nominated to serve for a period of two years and whose role it is to ensure the teams representing their nation at Championship events are of an appropriate standard. Great Britain joined the international federation in 2018.
