Katie Beresford from Stoke Spitfires Wheelchair Basketball Club has been training with Cheshire Phoenix WBC since the club launched in April.
Katie comes from Winsford to train with Phoenix WBC as well as training with Stoke and is progressing really well and at the weekend she got a great reward for her hard work.
Club Coach Anna Jackson and Katie went over to Sheffield to take part in the annual ‘Masters’ Wheelchair Basketball tournament. Katie was in the winning team with some real stars in it – Jayant Mistry, who plays for Leicester Cobras and is a Wheelchair Tennis star. Yvonne Waft ex GB Women’s team member and Colin Price, ex GB Men’s team were just a few of the stars in her team.
Everyone at Phoenix WBC would like to say a massive congratulations to Katie – we love having her train with the club and we hope she enjoyed her first taste of success in the sport.
