Community

The Wheelblazers realise that wheelchair basketball is as much a tool for education and experience as it is for fun.

We run a variety of successful and popular community outreach sessions in schools and businesses which educate on the issues of disability equality or simply provide a new and novel experience.

Where possible we seek funding for these sessions and have just completed a successful round of sessions funded, with profound thanks, to The Big Lottery Fund. Other times we make our equipment and coaches available for hire at very reasonable rates so if you’re interested in running a session for your school, club, organisation, event or business please get in touch for more information.
