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 new participants (for their first three sessions) to encourage everyone to get involved.
Membership is then just £10 per month (inc family membership) or £5 per session. Carers are free and, if cost is a barrier, please speak with Sarah, our head coach, as additional support is available.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
Practice Sessions Weekly

Our standard practice session is designed to provide suitable warm-ups, shooting and passing drills to improve skills, approved coaching to improve knowledge and challenging game experience following similar rules to the league.
Come along to this session if you want a longer, structured period of warm-ups followed by drills and theory, to close on a 20-minute game.
