Auckland City Basketball Club Affiliation:

Auckland City Basketball (Incorporated) is a support umbrella, dedicated to like-minded individually-owned club entities that affiliate in an effort to grow basketball throughout Auckland City in a sustainable way that is accessible to all.
Formed out of necessity, we have quickly exploded into Auckland’s largest grassroots basketball provider. Boasting Aucklands largest Inter-Club competition, every Saturday throughout all 4 school terms hundreds of young athletes grace our courts from morning till dark.
Above everything ACB values our ethos, people / communities & the use of basketball as a tool to teach life. We acknowledge the differences in our communities & empower clubs to maintain their individual ownership / identity while aligning collaboratively.
Whether you are an existing club or looking to grow from scratch, we have a fully inclusive package to cater.
