In an exciting step forward for North Wales Crusaders with the help of Mike Hayes of Rhyl Raptors wheelchair Basketball and North Wales Wheelchair Basketball tonight we held our very first Wheelchair basketball session. The session saw 10 of our North Wales Crusaders take to the court and for many of them have their first ever taste of basketball.
The gruelling session involved various drills and ended with a tough match. Mike was very impressed with the ability of all the players and is looking forward to our next session.
The aim of the club is to introduce this sport with the hope of entering our own team into the Wheelchair Basketball North Wales league in the future and also to train our own coaches.
The next session is scheduled for Friday 13th April from 6 till 8pm
