What we do

Wheelchair basketball is a fun packed team sport, and a great chance to engage in some friendly competition and develop personal fitness.

We are part of the Portsmouth-based charity Enable Ability, we enable young people aged 6+ with physical/mild-moderate learning disabilities to be active,  socialise and partake in some friendly competition. Every Wednesday from 5.00pm to 7.30pm we meet for an action packed session, and we have wheelchairs available for all participants.

Starting with a beginner’s session (5.00pm to 6.15pm) we warm up with fun games like Bulldog, before progressing onto passing and shooting drills. We finish with a short game that anyone of any ability can get involved with and enjoy.

Our more experienced players (6.15pm to 7.30pm) will undertake shooting based drills and then a short competitive game.
We have a trained level 2 coach to deliver our fun filled sessions, and volunteers on hand to assist attendees and even join in the sporting fun.

Volunteering

Volunteers are on hand to set-up the session each week and to support, befriend and encourage the young people to fully engage with the activity. Sessions are weekly and group based so it’s fun and sociable. All volunteers have DBS checks at the enhanced level and have to provide two references.
