Cheshire Phoenix Wheelchair Basketball Club


City/Town: Cheshire

Tell us your story: We are a wheelchair basketball team called Cheshire Phoenixs based in Ellesmere Port. We train children and adults with disabilities and able-bodied, every Saturday evening and we are currently unbeaten in the British Wheelchair league division 4G with 2 games remaining.

We have a couple of deaf players who train with us every week and we as a club decided to help them celebrate British Sign Language Week by doing a short video of us all signing “I play wheelchair basketball for Cheshire Phoenixs”. We are also help the players learn some basic sign language over the next few months.

We have a deaf player who is currently training for his coaching badges and is able to teach current and new players wheelchair sports via BSL.
