Junior Wheelchair Basketball

British Wheelchair Basketball

We are very proud to work with British Wheelchair Basketball (BWB) to help deliver our mission to provide more young people with access to sport and recreation.

In a partnership with stretching back to 2005, we provide funding for the BWB’s National Junior League and Skills Camps, which take place throughout the year across the UK. We also support the provision of sports wheelchairs for many individuals and clubs.

Our main objective will always be to provide opportunities for young people of all abilities to access sport. However, we are delighted that the talent pathway provided by BWB and the support that the Lord’s Taverners has been able to provide, has allowed many wheelchair basketball players to make it all the way to the Great Britain squads and the elite levels of the sport.

Case Study

Inspired by the Paralympic Games in 2012, Cameron decided to take up wheelchair basketball. He received his first sports wheelchair from the Lord’s Taverners in 2014 and hasn’t looked back since.
