Senior Para-sports Team Award

Senior Para-sports Team Award

The 2018 winner of the Senior Para-sports Team Award is Bears Wheelchair Basketball Club Women's Team.

The Bears Women's Basketball Team was created in September 2015 with members of the Bears Wheelchair Basketball Club. In their first season and first time playing competitive basketball, the women played in the BWB Women's League Division 3. The team finished in 2nd place and narrowly missed out on promotion. Last season the women won promotion to the BWB Women's League Division 2. The success the ladies have had so far has helped the Bears club to attract more women to start a new sport and also enjoy being part of the team and club. The fact that the team has come together and a lot of the ladies have only just started playing is an absolutely fantastic result.
