REMINDER AND NEW TIMES: Basketball Manitoba is excited to announce an opportunity for the public to come down to the new Canada Games Centre located at 145 Pacific Avenue in Winnipeg's Exchange District for Lunch Time Pick Up Basketball on Wednesdays and Fridays beginning immediately.  The open gym will be made available from 11:30 am - 1:30 pm to fitness centre members of the Canada Games Centre.

Non-members are welcome to come for a drop in fee of $5.00 per visit.  People are asked to head to the 4th floor of the new Centre and check in at the Fitness Centre Guest Services Desk (press the L4 button in the elevator) and then head to the gym on the 2nd floor (L2).  Get started with a $25.00 one-month trial offer! You can also test out the cushy new track,  lift some weights and sample up to eight fitness classes.  There is nothing to cancel when your trial ends.

The Centre has over 50 underground parking spots that can be accessed by members at an hourly rate.

The newly built Canada Games Centre was officially opened in June and hosted both basketball and volleyball at the Canada Games in August.  The Centre features 14 square glass backboards on 3 full FIBA sized hardwood basketball courts. Membership or the drop in fee will also include access to the upper fitness centre area and running track.

Over time and as demand increases, additional open gym days and times may be added to the week.  A basketball equipment sign out system will also be coming in the near future, so its suggested to BYOB for now!
