York Sharks - Wheelchair Basketball Club
Come Play with Us
York Sharks Wheelchair Basketball Club is the friendliest club in Yorkshire!
At York Sharks we encourage both able-bodied players, those with physical impairments plus individuals with learning disabilities to come together and share a love of the sport of Wheelchair basketball.
Players range from as young as 5 years old to those in their 60s or beyond.
Training sessions and friendly matches have now finally resumed, following the pandemic, at Fulford School Sports Hall and run EVERY Saturday between 12 noon and 2pm. All sessions are currently being offered at NO COST to participants (and spectators) to encourage everyone to get involved again.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
