Wheelchair Rugby Arrives in Dorset

GBWR are running a series of 4 taster sessions as part of our Sport England funded club development programme in a small town called “Broadstone” just outside Poole. The Dorset Destroyers are bidding to be the newest wheelchair rugby club and working in partnership with the Junction Sports & Leisure centre, the sessions have been designed to attract new players to the sport. Following the first session the numbers taking part have already increased three-fold and with visits from the local Mayor, local Councillors and the local paper the Destroyers are certainly growing at an impressive pace.

With one session left on the 9th November, the Dorset Destroyers, led by Nick & Sue Coombs, are now turning their attention to raising as much funding as possible, for enough chairs to start a weekly training session.
