NABBA is the first and the original competitve bodybuilding association. Formed in 1950, NABBA's first Mr Universe contest was won by Steve Reeves, who went on to make over 30 Hercules movies. Top bodybuilders who won the Mr Universe title include Reg Park, Bill Pearl and Arnold Schwarzenegger (four-times winner).

The late Oscar Heidenstam was appointed Secretary in 1956 and continued to drive NABBA forward for more than 30 years. At a meeting in London in 1984, NABBA International was formed and became host to the European & World Championships. This branch of NABBA is now supported by more than fifty countries.

Today, there are ten elected area reps covering England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland and they are members of the NABBA Council. Each area holds a qualifying event, which leads to the Annual Mr & Miss Britain Finals. This in turn becomes a qualifier for the European and Universe Championships. The Universe contest gets stronger every year - at the last Universe, representatives from 36 countries took part and a total of 151 athletes competed.

 

NABBA World Team
NABBA Chairman Jim Charles proposed at the last NABBA Council Meeting (Friday 27th May 2016) that the NABBA World Team selected from the NABBA Universe each year should be chosen from England, N. Ireland, Scotland and Wales collectively.  The Team would be called NABBA GB.  The NABBA Council were in full agreement.  The number of Competitors eligible for expenses for the NABBA World will be decided on an ongoing renewal basis each year, dependant on availability of funds and which Country hosts the World event.
