With their packed schedules, it is often difficult for professionals to find the time they need to stay physically fit. The New York Urban Professionals Basketball League was launched to provide busy people with an opportunity to socialize in a fun, active, competitive environment.

The league is open to anyone who has attended college or holds a professional position. The basketball league is host to several divisions for all levels of play and holds games at locations across the city, allowing for easy transit.

The New York Urban Professionals League strives to provide an atmosphere that values a high level of sportsmanship. A team’s registration fee includes the cost of eight games, divisional playoffs, trained scorekeepers, professional referees and court fees. Each team offers flexible scheduling to accommodate players’ full calendars.
