In June 2011, with a dream in our hearts and a ball in our hands, we started a Mens league to fill the void of the NBA career we could have had. This lack of basketball competitions in the Eastern Suburbs was a problem, and we knew we were the ones to fix it.
The call of the ball was strong, and we soon expanded our divisions to cater for players from 6 to 60 of both genders.
Fast forward to today, where EBL has training and competitions for over 1200 youths and 400 + adults across multiple venues. The passion and pride brought to every game inspires us to create more programs and opportunities.
We have expanded into School Holiday Camps, Learn to Play Programs, Academy Training and School Sessions.
