Macarthur's youth are invited to join a late night basketball program which will launch soon in Mount Annan.

A unique basketball format is coming to Macarthur.

Mount Annan Leisure Centre will host a late night basketball program from September 28.

Camden Council has launched the local initiative in partnership with YMCA NSW.

Councillor Lara Symkowiak said the late-night sports concept was successfully trialed as part of state-wide Youth Week celebrations in April.

“We anticipate that holding this event outside of standard times will encourage young people to join in,” she said.

“It’s an opportunity for young people to have fun and join in a team sport with people their own age.”

The free program will include full court basketball games, three-on-three player matches, three-point shootouts and dunk contests.

Locals aged 16 to 25 years are invited to participate in the program which is designed to help young people meet each other and develop their sports skills.

The first late night basketball session will be held at Mount Annan Leisure Centre on September 28 from 9pm to midnight.

No bookings are required and the program will be held on the last Friday of each month.
