It is with sadness that we have received the news of the death of Tim Scott. Tim was one of the founder members of Canterbury Wheelchair Rugby Club, having taken part in the club’s first taster session in 2013. Tim was a tactically smart player on court, known for his strong pick. His influence extended beyond playing as he was also hugely active in the running of the club and held positions as player representative and club youth coach. Tim volunteered to share his experience and time, to further grow the sport and inspire younger generations to get involved with wheelchair rugby.
Tim was one of life’s genuine people and all who met him instantly warmed to his friendly, fun and caring nature. He will be greatly missed by all of the wheelchair rugby community.
Our thoughts are with his wife Nic, his family, friends and team mates at this very sad time.
Rest in Peace Tim.
