This is what one of our players is doing on Sunday. She will walk 1km at Parallel London. Not bad going for someone who is paralysed from the waist down!!!!

Well the day will soon come that 75% of our club has been waiting for.

We start a new trial of Wheelchair Rugby called Wheelchair Rugby 5's (Because it's 5 a side) and it's been developed around our club and we have the world's very first unofficial tournament on Sunday December 10th at the birthplace of the Paralympics. Stoke Mandeville Stadium.

Can't quite believe what we've done :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin:

Well we started the new sport of Wheelchair Rugby, called Wheelchair Rugby 5's, which is open to more disabled people, and our aim was to beat as many teams as we could ;)

And WE DID :) :) :) Top of the Division after 4 games won. Still got a while to go, but better to be at the top winning than anything else
