East Coast Masters


NEWCASTLE Basketball has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 East Coast Masters, scheduled for September 11-12 at Newcastle Basketball Stadium.

The surge in COVID-19 cases, lockdown restrictions affecting Sydney, Central Coast, Blue Mountains, Wollongong and Shellharbour LGAs until August 28 at the earliest, and interstate border closures have left us with no other practical option.

As some teams have already booked accommodation and flights, we have made this decision now to give those teams time to make the necessary cancellations. All team nomination fees will be refunded and we apologise for any inconvenience.




Newcastle Basketball has made the tough decision to cancel the 2020 East Coast Masters scheduled for September 12-13.

A range of restrictions relating to the Coronavirus outbreak has left us with no option so we don’t compromise on what has been a great event for the past four years.

As some teams have already booked accommodation, the decision has been made now to give those teams time to make cancellations. We will refund nomination fees to teams who have already paid.

We have scheduled the 2021 East Coast Masters for September 11-12, so please save the dates. Thank you for your understanding, and we look forward to running a bigger and better tournament next year, hopefully free of the restrictions we currently face. See you in Newcastle.



CONGRATULATIONS to all our winners at the 2019 #EastCoastMasters at Newcastle Basketball Stadium, and thank you to all teams for participating in the right spirit of the tournament and making it such a fun and enjoyable weekend.
