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

My mum introduced me to the sport as she been playing for a long time. She played for the GB Wheelchair Basketball Team at the Paralympics in 1996. She thought I would love it and I do.

Wheelchair Basketball is a fantastic stress relief for me as I can be a bit of a stressy person sometimes!


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

One season a few years ago Sheffield Steelers couldn't put a second team together and I wasn't strong enough for the first team. So I needed a team to play in women's league. my mum asked Anna and Paula because she knew them from GB. They welcomed me in to the team. I made lots of new friends in Angels.


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

Maddie Thompson has been my hero since I started at Steelers. I love how Maddie is fearless and loud on court and I try to be like her.


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

I just want to enjoy playing and see my friends regularly.
