We want more people with disabilities to be able to access sport in and around our area. A lot of people with any form of disability feel isolated and in some cases a burden on family and friends, what we offer is a chance to get out in the community and to become a part of our club. We don't just offer the chance to play sport we are more of a family and will give anyone and everyone a chance to belong and gain a feeling of independence in our club. It doesn't matter to us a persons age, sex, ethnic background any and all are welcome. our youngest player today is 10 years old and we also have one of the oldest registered player in the Uk for our sport at 67 years young
we have players/volunteers from very diverse back grounds who have a massive range of health issues but to us that doesn't matter all we try to do is ensure everyone enjoys there time at the club and cant wait for the next session.
some of our players where born with both visible and invisible disabilities, some have had life changing injuries and some are as normal as you can be in this day and age, but the common factors throughout is they want to have fun, belong to something special or they just want to help us to breakdown the barriers in sport and the community in general.
our community work especially in the schools allows children to see first hand that having a disability or illness doesn't mean you cant join in with sport .
for us to continue to offer our great sport in as many versions as possible we rely on the generosity of others to fund things like new sports wheelchairs, essential equipment , playing kit.
all our coaches do what they do for the love of the sport but more importantly for the idea behind what we do which is to bring grassroots wheelchair/disability sports to the wider stage. We also offer all our members the opportunities to go on various training courses 2019/2020 saw us put 8 members through a level 3 mental health first aid course, 6 members through a first aid qualification and another 10 through sport specific training courses
our club to date has supplied no fewer than19 players to the international squads
