Phoenix rises from the Campus

With summer upon us, it’s time to try out a new sport - wheelchair basketball.

These sessions are being run after Stantonbury Arts and Leisure was successful with the Big Lottery Awards For All. The money was spent on 10 sports wheelchairs to develop wheelchair basketball and other wheelchair-based sports.

The aim is to build on the sessions and to set up a team with an option to begin competitive play under the name Stantonbury MK Phoenix and as an official member of the British Wheelchair Basketball Association.

Coaching sessions will begin at Stantonbury Campus on Wednesday June 3.
