Derby Wheelblazers was formed in August 2007 after a trial period by Derby City Council B Sporty team.
To help the club set up, Mansfield Maulers and Gordon Perry kindly loaned the club some Sports Wheelchairs to help get of the ground and GBWBA donated £1000.
In December 2007, the charity Local Network Fund gave Derby Wheelblazers a grant to purchase 8 junior wheelchairs. A grant was also awarded from Derby City Council.
In Sept 2007, Derby Wheelblazers entered the Great Britain Wheelchair Basketball Association League for the very first time.
