Knox Basketball Incorporated (KBI) is located in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne and is one of the largest basketball associations in Australia with approximately 1069 teams competing every week in our Junior and Senior domestic competitions.

Knox Basketball was established in 1965 to provide youth from the City of Knox with a sporting and social infrastructure to develop and promote personal, team and social skills in a sporting environment.

Founded by Alf Stevens, Alice Jago and Heather Kemp it began as an after school competition at the Mossfield Avenue Facility, Ferntree Gully in 1974. In 1980 its headquarters moved to the 3 court facility in Park Crescent at Boronia which was later expanded to six courts in 1989.

In 2012, Knox Basketball in partnership with Knox City Council opened the brand new, state-of-the-art State Basketball Centre in Wantirna South that adds an additional 6 courts under the control of Knox Basketball.

KBI is managed by a board that provides the strategic direction of the association including the conduct, encouragement, promotion and administration of basketball throughout Victoria, the City of Knox and its surrounding areas.

We conduct introductory basketball programs for children of all abilities and ages, school holiday camps and a schools program that visits over 80 schools within the local community.

The Knox Basketball Stadium (Boronia) and the State Basketball Centre (Wantirna South) provide opportunities for meetings, functions, social events and elite competitions with the 3,150 seat show court located at the State Basketball Centre.

JUNIORS

Knox Basketball’s Junior Domestic Competition is arguably the largest of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere. Sixteen clubs make up the Junior Domestic Competition, with in excess of 5,500 players. With an average of 700 teams competing each weekend, there is a total of 22 courts that are utilised each week in order for the large number of participants to play.

RAIDERS

Players are selected to play in Knox Raider teams which represent Knox in elite competitions such as the Victorian Junior Basketball League (VJBL), Big V Victorian Youth Championship and Big V State Championship basketball Leagues.
