Wheelchair Basketball

Welcome to University of Nottingham Wheelchair Basketball!

We are an inclusive, friendly and competitive club for wheelchair basketball players of all standards - from complete beginners to pros in the chair, we offer a postive atmosphere for all to take part. For complete beginners we offer the new 'Engage' programme, aimed at those who want to try out a new sport in a social enviroment. Anyone can come along to these sessions, if you don't have a sports membership you will have to pay a small fee. For the more advanced and competitive players, we offer a club training session. These sessions run drills that are geared towards improving your WBB skillset whist also allowing you to put those skills into practice in a competitve game towards the end of the session. For both sessions, the club provides a range of basketball chairs that cater for players of all sizes. 

At UoNWBB, we encourage players of all physical abilities to get in the chair and give it a go - whether you have a disability or not, everyone is welcome.

Competition

We compete in the University Championships, comprising of a regional group stage and a national finals stage. 

Also, as part of the Nottingham Varsity Series we play NTU each year - we are looking to make it four wins in a row!
