Norfolk Knights Wheelchair Rugby Club

A NEW WHEELCHAIR SPORT FOR NORFOLK

Norfolk Knights are a Wheelchair Rugby club (Est. 2016) with the aim of bringing this exciting Wheelchair Sport to Norfolk.

In forming this club we have tried to take account of some of the key barriers to participation, and actively reduce or remove them, in order to build and promote an inviting club environment:

  • We’re creating the opportunity
  • We’re providing the key equipment
  • We’re selecting accessible locations/venues
  • We’re focussed on minimising member costs

Woodbridge Wheeled Warriors

Woodbridge Wheeled Warriors wheelchair rugby team trains on Sundays between 10.30am – 12.30pm at

Woodbridge School’s Dome
Burkitt Rd
Woodbridge
IP12 4JH

The venue is perfect and also may offer storage for the wheelchairs. We have started league wheelchair rugby with the new chairs from fundraising and have travelled to several league weekends already.

Leeds Powerchair Football Club

Leeds Powerchair FC (LPFC) has been in existence since October 2012 and was formed as a direct result of the 2012 London Games. A group of parents/carers decided to build and develop a platform for people with complex physical disabilities to access the “Beautiful Game”

In a very short space of time the club has grown to provide coaching, training and competitive playing opportunities for 25+ players. The sport is the only one which offers a fast paced, highly skilled game which provides a huge adrenaline rush to those with complex motor or cognitive skills.

Shropshire Disabled Cricket Team

Shropshire Disability Representative Squads

Cricket Shropshire currently run two Disability representative squads. The D40 squad plays hardball cricket (40 overs per side) and compete in the ECB D40 North Division against other Counties.

The Super 9's squad is a development team consisting of less experienced disability cricketers. They play with a softball (30 overs per side) and compete in the Super 9s Midlands/North Division against other Counties.

Both squads are managed by David Hassell (manager), Graham Furber and Jonathan Caldecott (coaches).

Durham Visually Impaired Cricket Club

First founded in June 2007, Durham’s Visually Impaired Cricket Team now play in ECB’s (England and Wales Cricket Board) Development League, agonise 11 other teams.

Visually Impaired (VI) cricket is a specially adapted version of the game that is suitable for anyone with a visual impairment – whether partially sighted or totally blind.

The main adaptation is the ball – in the domestic leagues and cups, the game is played with a size three football that is filled with tiny carbon balls that make a sound when the ball bounces or is struck by the bat.

Sheffield Steelkings

The Sheffield Steelkings Para Ice Hockey Club is the youngest team in the British Para Ice Hockey League. We are made up of male and female, able-bodied and disabled members. Para ice hockey is perfect for people with a lower-body impairment who are looking for a highly skilled, fast, physical team sport. We believe para ice hockey is for everybody and last year we were rewarded with a National Lottery Award for our work getting people playing the sport. Come and try the coolest game on ice!
