GTBA HISTORY

2010 – GTBA #TheGoldenEra – Seasons 1 – 14 – General Tsos Basketball Association also known as GTBA, tsobasketball, and the Saturday Basketball Association, is the most unique rec-league from men in the Indianapolis area. It is a little more than a rec-league… GTBA is the only basketball league in Indiana that is organized and run by a group of volunteers, who put in many hours of their lives, time and effort to provide game videos, player and game statistics, custom jerseys and referees. The basketball league begun with just 4 teams early in 2009, but due to its popularity it kept on growing and by the fall of 2010 it was up to 12 teams with games running every Saturday from 1pm top 6pm. In Summer 2011 (Sason 6) The final game was played on August 21st downtown Indianapolis at the home of the Indiana Pacers and Fever, Conseco Fieldhouse. Player skill levels begin from just good ol’ Indiana pickup game experience to, high school, to college, and yes we even have a few pro’s trying us out during their off season from overseas. Due to its growing popularity and fan base, the GTBA has a presence in the growing social media world and can be found additionally to this website on Facebook, and Twitter.

2014 – GTBA #TheLostYears – Seasons 12-15 – After a few years of absence. The league has been resurrected on the South side of Indianapolis. Keep up-to-date with player comments and trash talk on the official facebook pagehttps://www.facebook.com/goGTBA/

2016 – GTBA #TheNewEra – Seasons 16 – Present – Now the new Game Time Basketball Association, since the league has slowly grown away from the original founding players. Games will be held on Sundays, and after many season of complaining, 2 paid officials will ref each game. The league still try’s to maintain a high quality of play but with a laid back attitude focused on pure enjoyment of the game and entertainment. The new era will see the best gym the league has ever played in. The Park Tudor High School main gym, located just north of downtown Indianapolis. This is by far the most centrally located gym the league has been in and hopes to see new talent for the upcoming seasons. We are looking forward to some great action in this new era of the GTBA, but will not forget our past by carrying on our acronym and most importantly our league trophy that is past to the winning captain after each season…. Well so much for the Trophy.

Pictured is some of the founding players who help start the GTBA. and the 1st commissioner Paul Tan (1st Row, far right), and current commissioner Thomas Hailey (1st Row, far left), Xiao Chen (1st Row, center) also helped get the league off the ground by organizing many teams that consisted of mainly Asian players. Without these 3 the league as we know it would never started, but still running to this day because of all the players who love the game.
