Manchester Magic and Mystics In The Community

Our Community programme attempts to cater for everyone, of all ages, abilities and backgrounds. We want to inspire, nurture, challenge and unite people, especially the young. We also want everyone to be able to enjoy the game in a fun, friendly and safe atmosphere. A registered charity and not-for-profit organisation, we have been running sessions on a weekly basis since the late 1990s, moving to the purpose-built Amaechi Basketball Centre in 2002. We also hold community camps in school holidays, as well as other events and tournaments. Take a look below at the sessions we currently offer. If you have an ideas or suggestions for us or you want to know more, contact Toloe, our Basketball Development Officer, by email at or by calling 0161 881 0090.
