WELCOME TO OUR CLUB
Cheshire Phoenix Wheelchair Basketball Club was formed in 2014 in partnership with Cheshire Phoenix Community Interest Club. We have a dedicated team of volunteers and coaches who work hard to ensure everyone has a good time and develop their skills.
Wheelchair Basketball can be played by people with and without disabilities.
We have a mixed senior league team who for the 2021-2022 season will be playing friendly games with the plan to re-enter National or Local league in 2022-2023 season.
We also have a focus on Women's development and run specific sessions to help players, coaches and volunteers to get involved.
The Junior section of our club is growing and some of our juniors play in the league with other junior league clubs and also for the North West Regional teams.
There are plenty of opportunities for everyone to be involved,
Our club welcomes players of all ages and abilities so come and have a go - we guarantee you will enjoy it. We have sports wheelchairs you can use - you just need to be fit enough to get yourself up and down the court.
We are now back at training every Saturday
Training for Juniors, development players, and new players
Training for selected players only
(Both training sessions currently require a negative lateral flow test and a Risk Assessment form to be filled in)
