Our Aim is to provide a safe and welcoming environment for those with a disability, particularly those individuals whose disability creates mobility problems and who want to participate in sport.
We meet and train on a weekly basis (see Contacting Us). All training takes place under the supervision of qualified and experienced coaches who have gained their skills by ‘hands on’ involvement and who hold a British Wheelchair Basketball coaching qualification.

The club also provides a venue for the disabled to meet socially and in an informal atmosphere where problems and difficulties can be aired and shared, often finding a solution through personal experience.

Training activities consist of a series of exercises and routines designed not only to improve your overall fitness but in particular your upper body strength, your hand / eye co-ordination and your heart and lung functions. The exercises can also help in body weight control when linked to a healthy eating programme. All the necessary equipment such as sports wheelchairs can be loaned, free of charge, from the club and team strips are also provided by the club. The intention is to enjoy yourself whilst improving your fitness levels, developing your self confidence and instil ambition.

When & Where: We are currently based at the Oxstalls Campus of the University of Gloucestershire, off the Cheltenham Road in Gloucester (for SatNav users GL2 9HW), this is also the venue for our home matches which usually take place on a Saturday in the playing season; from September through to May.

Competitive matches: The club fields teams in the National Wheelchair Basketball leagues, at Division 3 (South) and in the Development League for the less experienced and newly joined members. Our Away matches take us to Aylesbury, Lewisham (London), Southampton, Plymouth, Warwick and Farnborough in addition to friendly matches against clubs in Worcester and Swindon.

Costs: We suggest that those considering the sport make contact with us to confirm our training schedule and venue and then come along for a month or so before committing to membership of £10 a calendar month. This figure includes your personal insurance and your registration with British Wheelchair Basketball and use of club equipment. We usually find that those who enjoy the activity stay with us whilst those who find it’s not for them opt out after a couple of weeks.

The opportunity is there for everyone, all you have to do is make the second move by contacting the club by ‘phone or e-mail. Your first move was reading this!

The club’s motto is: – “Be Proud, Be a Blazer”
