WHAT'S THE PROBLEM WE'RE TRYING TO SOLVE?

Currently Oxford Eagles Wheelchair basketball club lacks funds to repair/buy chairs and to regularly hire the local sports hall. Our aim is to raise enough money to repair the chairs currently in our possession, put aside money for new chairs and have the funds to run regular wheelchair basketball sessions at the local leisure centre.

WHY DO WE CARE ABOUT THIS PROJECT?

Wheelchair basketball enables a level playing field for able and disable bodied players. We think it is important to make sport as inclusive as possible and believe wheelchair basketball is the best way forward. As coaches we have seen the benefits wheelchair basketball can have on individuals, whether disabled, injured or able bodied, and want more people to experience the joys of wheelchair basketball.

HOW WILL THE MONEY BE SPENT?

We need £750 which will include the costs of: - Wheelchair repairs (£100) - Weekly sport hall funds till Christmas (£352) - Savings for new wheelchair basketball sports chairs (£298)

WHEN WILL WE SEE THE DIFFERENCE?

As soon as the season starts in September! Hopefully with the starts of the funding we will be able to run weekly sessions oppose to the current fortnightly sessions. With regular training we hope that players will become more confident in regards to their personal development, meaning that we will be able to arrange friendly games in the future. We also hope that the chair repairs will enhance player experiences and overall wheelchair skills and mobility.
