Change the world



Who are we?


Madibaz Basketball Club is comprised of the Madibaz Men’s and Madibaz Women’s teams, each comprising of up to 12 registered players. Both teams participate in the USSA-EC League (which was initiated by the Madibaz teams) and the Mayoral Cup Competition. As with all Nelson Mandela University sports, the Madibaz Basketball season culminates in the annual Intervarsity Tournament. Due to the structure of the season, we accept team players in first semester and recreational and internal league players in second semester.  The Club runs an Internal League for anyone interested in playing at a less competitive level (for further details please email the Club Manager).

Any Nelson Mandela University student or university graduate can join the club. We have internal coaches that assist with skills training and fitness sessions to ensure that members are suitably fitted into a role where they can enjoy an active contribution. We are proud to promote the diversity in our university; anyone can play basketball and the involvement of international student athletes provides an interesting culture amongst our membership.
