Brooklands is a tram stop on the Altrincham Line of Greater Manchester's light-rail Metrolink system in the Brooklands area of Sale. It opened on 15 June 1992 as part of Phase 1 of Metrolink's expansion.


The station was originally opened on 1 December 1859 by the Manchester, South Junction and Altrincham Railway (MSJAR) after Samuel Brooks, a Manchester banker, built an estate of large houses along Brooklands Road. It closed as a British Rail station on 24 December 1991 before reopening as a Metrolink station on 15 June 1992.
