Located at Bellevue Sports Village in Manchester their healthy sports activities club’s activities are ran by qualified coaches using specialist equipment and basketball wheelchairs. All levels are catered for and help improve the physical and mental well-being of their members.

Over the years many of their teams have gone onto win many leagues, tournaments and championships and are extremely proud of three Mavericks juniors who have gone onto play basketball at Paralympic level.
