What we're about

What we're about

We are a local league team who go by the name of Tune Squad. We play on Thursday & Sundays (bury, oldham). We have started a meetup for a few reasons:
* Bring more competition in
* Raise more money for the club to be able to purchase balls / kits / expenses etc.
* Grow the community feel of basketball.

Here is more information about the session: -

We are looking for a group for adults in the Manchester area interested in playing basketball in a non-coached, non-refereed setting. The group is open to all skill levels, genders and ages (16+).

We currently run only 1 session per week at Philips High School (M45 7PH) on Tuesday evenings.

We're interested in trying to spread our availability a bit, so if you know of a venue and would be willing to organise sessions there, please let us know.

If you're not sure about attending or want a bit more information, get in touch with the organisers and we'll be happy to help.

More information:

We run one hour sessions. The cost per attendee is £3.50 for the session. The fees cover, in the first place, the cost of hiring the courts, any extra is then put back into the group by covering Meetup site fees (monthly contract), buying bibs and balls etc.

To make the running of the sessions as easy as possible and to keep quality high we have set out a few rules and guidelines.

One hour sessions are limited to 10 attendees (As we get a minimum of 6 players from the team to attend anyway). This is done to make sure that sessions aren't too crowded and that everyone gets decent playing time, attendance is first come first served.

To keep track of attendees we need your name and/or picture on Meetup to be of you. If you want to use a fun picture you need to have your real name (only needs to be your first name) on your meetup profile and if you don't want to have your real name on your Meetup profile you need a clearly identifiable picture. If this causes you an issue, please contact the organisers and we'll make alternative arrangements.

On RSVPing to a session you will be asked to pay the fee for attending via Paypal, if you have to change your RSVP you will be refunded as long as it is done the day before the session. Cancellations less than 24 hours before a session will not have the fee refunded. This is done to give those on the waiting list adequate time to adjust their plans and/or RSVP response.

If you are not registered for a session you can choose to attend in case of any last minute no shows, however you do so on the understanding that there is no guarantee that you will get to play and a strong chance that you won't. Turning up to a session when on the waiting list does not mean that you will get to play by default. If you do get to play in case of a no show the session fee will still apply and can be paid by cash at the session or by Paypal.

At the start of each session there will be a warm up period, 10 minutes for a one hour session. Anyone who has not arrived by the end of the warm up period and has not let us know they are on their way will be deemed to be late and anyone on the wait list will be put in to the session. The person who is late can still play when they arrive but will have to wait for a break in the session etc.
