We have players local to Rotherham and Sheffield who play- equally we have players who travel from across Yorkshire to participate in our training sessions.

We currently have players ranging from 8-79 years old, affected by a range of disabilities.

There is no age limit- if you can control an electric powered wheelchair- you can participate.

We have bumper guards that fit most power wheelchairs and these can be used free of charge.

We also have a limited number of electric powered wheelchairs which participants can use if they do not have access to their own power-chairs

We do recommend that you phone or email in advance, where possible, so that we can discuss your needs and requirements and ensure your introduction to the sport is as fulfilling as it can be.
