More About The Organisation

Organisation Description

About the Organisation

We’re always looking for new athletes aged 5-18 to join our junior teams and adults to come along to train and when numbers allow we will put in an adults team. Whether you’re brand new to the game or you’ve played wheelchair basketball before, we would love to have you. We welcome disabled and non-disabled athletes alike, and we even can provide you with a sports wheelchair to use during sessions and matches and help you with getting funding to get your own chair. Our athletes have a wide range of abilities and impairments, including spina bifida, cerebral palsy, amputations and congenital impairments, and several have no disability at all. Friends and siblings are welcome to join too. Depending on your ability level and interests, one of our programmes will be perfect for you.
