Why do you like wheelchair basketball? And why did you start playing the sport?

I started playing in 2015 as I needed a hobby in my life. I didn’t realise how much I would love it and how competitive I could be! I love the team aspect of the sport as well as the physical fitness side of things and skills I have learnt.


Why did you decide to join Cheshire Phoenix Wheelchair basketball club/ Angels?

I joined Angels Women’s League team after recommendation from another Angels player and I would never want to play for any other Women’s League Team. Angels are definitely the best team to be a part of!


Do you have a favourite wheelchair basketball player? If so, who and why?

Sophie Carrigill - Sophie really welcomed me into training at Sheffield and has been so helpful giving me lots of advice and tips and is always friendly and encouraging to everyone. If I can ever have half the skills and knowledge of the game as Sophie I’ll be happy!


Do you have a future goal for the sport such as going Elite, becoming a coach etc...?

I have been lucky enough to be offered the opportunity to be on the GB Women’s Academy programme which I never thought I’d even be considered for, and I just want to learn as much as I can and be as good as I possibly can be at the game to try and be an asset to the teams I play for!


What hobbies do you have?

Holidays, socialising with friends, knitting, taking my dog for long walks (when the weather allows)

​Do you have any cool qualifications in anything?

I have an accounting qualification although I don’t actually work in finance. I love numbers and money though so made sense to do the qualification!


Tell me one fact about yourself

I used to live in Saudi Arabia
