Manchester Mystics U12 and U14 Sessions
We now have a group of 15 Primary School girls from ages 7 – 11 years who are practising and improving their skills with a view to entering the Manchester Mystics National League programme.
We would like to increase these numbers but only with girls who are fully committed, very keen on their basketball and wish to improve their skills.
If you know anyone who fits the bill, they can just turn up at the session or contact me for more information.
Sunday at Amaechi Basketball Centre (M16 8GW), 10:30am – 12 noon, £2 per session.
Manchester Mystics are holding Girls coaching sessions for any players who wish to join the U12 and U14 groups in September.
Sessions are only for keen basketball players who wish to improve their skills and have the ambition to play National League.
Joe Forber and Peter Paraskeva (Director of Basketball) will do the coaching. Sessions will begin on Sunday 29 May and go on to the end of the School Summer Term.

A Big Thanks from the Club
There never really is an end to the season as the basketball seemingly never stops but I thought it was a good time to thank everyone for their voluntary efforts this past season. The tasks you do are too numerous to mention and the backing you give us is never ending, and the Board of Trustees and myself would like you to know that your support is hugely appreciated. There are plenty of challenges ahead but I believe it is an exciting time for the Club. Thanks again for your support.
Long may it continue!
Joe and the Board of Trustees

We’re looking for Sponsorship
The Greater Manchester Community Basketball Club, home to some of the best young talent in England and also known as the Manchester Magic and Mystics, is looking for sponsorship.
If you know of any companies who might be willing to back the club financially, we would be grateful for any help, contact Phil Gordos on 07872412926 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The Club needs your help.
We currently rely on grants, benefactors and the excellent fundraising by Club members who give considerable time and effort to support the Community and National League programmes at the Centre.
An area in which we have been lacking in the past is Sponsorship. This could be for the Community Programme, Age Group National League teams and Senior Magic and Mystics teams. I am sure there are many opportunities to pursue this and I feel certain that there will be Club people out there who have the skills to help – be it in the field of business, finance and marketing. You may not be able to help directly but will know people who can.
If you can help the Club to grow and become even more influential in the local areas, I will be very grateful if you could contact me.
