Beach Basketball® is an exciting, non-stop action game played in the sand, by HOOPSTERS of all ages. The game was born more than four decades ago on the physical education fields of Gulf Shores School. This modified version of basketball, invented by Philip Bryant, has grown from a tremendously effective skill improvement game to a very popular, widespread competitive sport.
For the past 20 years, the World Beach Basketball Association© has developed a grassroots player interest, resulting in game play in 15 of the WBBA 36 worldwide regions. The WBBA Upper Caribbean Region, with commissioner Mickey Muñoz, was selected "2009 WBBA Region of the Year" for their efforts in administration of tournaments for Beach Basketball® players. The 2011 Beach Basketball® 18th Annual World Championships will be hosted by the WBBA© in Gulf Shores, Alabama, the birthplace of Beach Basketball®. Presently, seven WBBA© World Regions are hosting upcoming tournaments.
HOOPSTERS of all ages are getting into the game...former Harlem Globe Trotter Ed Hicks (second from left) along with 1999 "Commissioner of the Year" Frank Bisesi (third from left) regularly participate on the sandy shores of Lake Erie.
If you are a coach looking for another game to add to your sports curriculum, Beach Basketball® may be just the game. Beach Basketball® is the perfect game for boys and girls either young or old. Whether you have a beautiful beach or a gymnasium, the game is adaptable to either court. An Official Rule Book is available for $2.95, please send your request and either a Purchase Order # or your charge account information to: World Beach Basketball Association® and the "Official Rules and Regulations"© will be mailed to you.
