What is FIMBA?

FIMBA GB is the United Kingdom ‘arm’ of FIMBA – The Federation of Masters Basketball Association (http://www.fimba.net/en/).

FIMBA GB has been authorised by FIMBA World to regulate and control players and teams from the United Kingdom representing Great Britain at FIMBA events worldwide.

FIMBA GB aspires to see the maxibasketball movement grow and prosper and, in time, for Great Britain to not only be represented in as many age groups and categories as possible but also to feature in event hosting on the world stage.

In 2022 FIMBA GB facilitated the participation of 16 male and female basketball squads in the FIMBA European Championships which were held in Malaga, Spain. The FIMBA GB teams had a very successful competition and brought home 5 medals; their inaugural performances certainly made their mark on the world stage – click here for the full report. For 2023 FIMBA GB teams will be entering the FIMBA World Championships in Argentina, the ESBA European Championships in Portugal and a host of other international Masters tournaments.

It is proud to be able to keep players in the game as well as opening up new tournaments for them.
