How did you get into the sport?
Having watched “Mavericks”, a children’s tv programme based round a wheelchair basketball team, I was keen to have a go when a paralympic flame event locally gave me the chance. The Coach said I showed a good deal of promise and was encouraged to find a club to join. I joined Stoke Spitfires and have never looked back. I enjoy visiting Phoenix WBC to get more regular “fixes” of this highly addictive sport.

What are your ambitions in Wheelchair Basketball ?
Unfortunately my disability means that I am too injury prone to progress as far in the sport as I would like but I hope to progress as a coach as well as playing at club level.
