Time is flying!! It’s just under seven weeks until the Masters Basketball Association National Championship. Slots are filling up quickly in all age groups with just over a week left for team registration.

Over the past six weeks I have spoken to many of you and there are a lot of newcomers to Masters Basketball. This year we have new teams in the 40’s, 50’s, 55’s, 60’s, 65’s and 70’s divisions. We also have five teams registered in the 75+ division. Almost 40% of the players on the submitted rosters were not in our tournament last year. We want to welcome all the new players and we hope this will be the first of many MBA National Championships you participate in and enjoy our hospitality.

Our team entry registration deadline is April 1 and as of when I wrote this column, there is still room for teams and players. I will be continuing to help put teams together for this year’s tournament to enable more players to have the experience of our first class competition and also the camaraderie of Masters Basketball. If you are still interested in playing in this year’s tournament, please contact me at steve@mastershoops.org. While team entry closes soon, rosters usually have movement between now and early May so you can still end up on a team.

I look forward to seeing all of you in May!!

Steve Nelson
Tournament Director
