Manchester Mystics

New Manchester tournament for Women’s basketball

The inaugural Maggie Forber Invitational Basketball Tournament will take place at the Amaechi Basketball Centre on 30 June and 1 July.

An eight-team competition for under-18 girls, the Manchester event has already secured entries from England and Ireland.

It will also feature host club Manchester Mystics, who will be entering two sides in the two-day tournament.

Named in honour of Maggie Forber, co-founder of the Manchester Mystics, organisers hope the event will become a permanent fixture in the basketball calendar and help raise the profile of the women’s game.

Contact the club via email at for an entry form and information pack.

The club is also on the lookout for sponsors, so please the spread the message.

All money we generate will be ploughed back into women’s basketball in Manchester.
