We do not have a Wheelchair Basketball Club or any other Wheelchair Sports in the Borough. Putting on taster sessions during our Half Term Holidays and Para Multi-Sport events and gathering feedback from participants showed a big interest in the this type of sport.
Recently Havering Sixth Form College showed an interest in putting on a Wheelchair Basketball session where we liaise with local clubs/organisations such as:
-Local Basketball Club Right Development Foundation
-Local Schools and Colleges
-Disability Steering Groups
-Local Disability Community Groups
-Local Sport Clubs
-Havering SENCO departments
The idea being that we start with Wheelchair Basketball and open the club up to other Multi-Sport activities.
