Recently Ballygarven youth club had Mr Paul Ryan, from the “Rebel Wheelers” basketball team visiting our club. We ran it over two nights, and had many 5 a side matches lasting 10 min each. The skills required are incredible, and all of the teens had great biscepts after the night! A huge thanks to Paul for his time and the use of his equipment. Here is what one of the members had to say about the event....
“In Ballygarvan Youth Club for the past 2 weeks we have been playing wheelchair basketball! It is great “Craic” and is actually a lot harder and more physical than you would imagine. There is a seriuos feeling around when you are playing and the game itself is brilliant. Of course the adrenaline helps when you're going full pelt down the court about to hit a wall!!”
