ACES Wheelchair Basketball

There were eight teams, split into two groups. Each team in each group played each other. The winners of each group played the runner’s up of the other group in the Semi-finals. The two winners went through to the final.

BEJSC entered three teams. One from the Climbing Section, one from the Swimming Section and one made from members of the BEJSC Junior Committee. All three teams did well, however it was the Junior Committee team which made the semi-finals, but were knocked out by the eventual winners of the competition.

We all had a good time, even if we did come away from the experience worn out and with a few blisters. I recommend you give wheelchair basketball a go if you ever get the opportunity, it is very enjoyable and not a real challenge. Please see the photos below and this link:
