Charity Wheelchair Basketball Tournament for everyone!

We have received the following from Rotary Club of Coventry Jubilee. If anyone would be interested?



I am organising a charity wheelchair basketball tournament, on behalf of Coventry Jubilee, to raise money for Rotary Charities and Coventry Wheelchair Basketball Academy and thought you may be interested in submitting a team made up of people and/or staff involved with your services/projects. Coventry Wheelchair Basketball Academy (CWBA) is part of the YMCA.

The tournament is taking place at Woodlands Academy, Broad Lane, Coventry on Sunday September 14th 2014 and consists of the tournament and a family fun day where there will be a bouncy castle, BBQ, face painting, mini chair challenges, photo booth and charity stalls for all the family to enjoy. The tournament is open to anybody, able bodied and disabled, age 9+ and is great fun way of exercising and trying something new! No prior game experience is necessary and sports wheelchairs will be provided where needed. Wheelchair basketball is a great way to integrate the community and abilities.

We require teams of 5-8 players, playing 5-a-side games. There will be group stage games, leading a semi final and a final, refereed by CWBA head coach. The cost is £50 per team, regardless of the amount of players. We have been promoting this throughout Coventry and have teams made up of a mixture of able bodied and disabled players, families, companies and friends!

Please let me know if you would be interested in being part of this event, we would love you to be involved, I’m sure it will be a great day and fun for everyone!
