Benefit from our links with local schools and sports clubs around Manchester or help at large scale sporting events in the area. We can offer you plenty of volunteering opportunities in a variety of roles including coaching, officiating, sports development and administration.
If it is not sport that inspires you why not check the variety of other health and fitness opportunities available to you through our ACTIVE Manchester programme which includes a variety of fitness classes, one off events and other free activities.
If you don't fancy getting involved in any of these programmes to play a particular sport you can also just book a facility and turn up and play with friends. Check our our facilities pages to find out more.
Just in case you can't find what you are looking for, we also work closely in partnership with the Students' Union who support over 30 other sports societies run by students.
