"Spider - Y have been a crucial part of me getting involved with wheelchair basketball. I started playing 3 years ago after I was involved in a car crash and became injured.

I was warmly welcomed at the club and always encouraged to keep trying with the sport.
Thanks to this continued support from Spider Y and the good coaching provided I was scouted by someone from the GB programme and was asked to be part of their set up and attend training camps etc.

I was selected to compete in the European Championship in Frankfurt for GB where we got a Bronze Medal.

It is thanks to Spider Y that I didn't just give up when I was finding getting to grips with basketball hard"
