Active Lincolnshire’s CEO Wheelchair Basketball Challenge

Active Lincolnshire’s CEO Wheelchair Basketball Challenge 2020

Due to the current situation with Covid-19 we have cancelled all upcoming fixtures and postponed the 2020 league until further notice. If you have any questions please contact ian.brown@activelincolnshire.com

Our annual wheelchair basketball challenge is now in its 10th year!
This inclusive and fun workplace challenge gives everyone the opportunity to get active with their peers and experience a sport that creates an equal playing field.

Glen Garrod, Executive Director of Adult Care and Community Wellbeing at Lincolnshire County Council, is an advocator of the annual challenge saying:
“I found wheelchair basketball gave me a massive buzz – it is fast paced, very skilled and challenging. Sitting in a wheelchair and playing a competitive match with people who use wheelchairs because they need to was a great leveller, wonderful for team building, real fun and great exercise. In my book everyone should have a go at least once”

Craig Naylor, Deputy Chief Constable of Lincolnshire Police, took part in a previous challenge said:“As a novice to wheelchair basketball I thoroughly enjoyed my first competitive game. So much to think about and any skill I thought I had at shooting a basket disappeared as soon as I sat in the chair. This was the first time we had come together as a team and Lynn managed to get us working well together through great coaching and instruction as well as appealing to our competitive natures. I am looking forward to the next tournament and hope to continue to play now that I have figured out how to move the chair!”
