WHEELCHAIR BASKETBALL CHALLENGE 2018

Copper Box Arena, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park

 

"This is a great opportunity to try wheelchair basketball and be coached by some of the most talented players in their sport. It will open up people's minds to the world of disability sport."                                                       Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson DBE

 

For the 3rd consecutive year Path to Success’s Wheelchair Basketball Challenge took place at the Iconic Copper Box in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on 25th September 2018 with the support of the London Titans Wheelchair Basketball Club. More than 100 people attended the tournament, as ten corporate teams took to the court. Team Molinare won the battle for the title of ‘Corporate Wheelchair Basketball Champion’.

Teams were coached by prominent Paralympians including Louise Sugden, Matt Sealy and Tyler Saunders, while Channel 4 reporter and Path to Success Patron Jordan Jarrett-Bryan compered the event. Captain Helen Freeman and Siobhan Fitzpatrick, stars of the Women’s GB Team who recently won silver medals at the World Championships, were also in attendance.
