BUDDING wheelchair basketball players or sports fans interested in having a go are invited to take on the challenge by Warwickshire Bears.

The Warwickshire Bears Wheelchair Basketball Academy is giving everyone from across Solihull, Warwickshire and the West Midlands, whatever age, level, or disability, to try out the sport at one of their session at North Solihull Sports Club from 9.30am on Saturdays.

The club said: “The Bears offer a community that is far more than simply a basketball team.

“Our mission is to inspire and support everyone facing obstacles in life and encourage them to turn them into opportunities, however difficult that may seem.

“We celebrate inclusivity and positivity and encourage both disabled and able-bodied players to take part.

“One of the best things about the sport is that it is suitable for disabled people and able-bodied people. If you come down to the club you’ll see friends, brothers and sisters all playing against one another.”

On Sunday (June 9), Warwickshire Bears are hosting a national tournament, supported by British Wheelchair Basketball, to foster competition and a love of the game amongst the under 14s.

There will be six teams from across the country, will be playing one another for the prestigious title of Tournament Champion.

Doors open at 10am at the Nechell Wellbeing Centre, Birmingham.

The event is being supported by law firm Irwin Mitchell.
