Action from the taster sessions

The first two wheelchair rugby taster sessions organised by Coventry Rugby and GBWR at Xcel Centre, Canley, have proved a big hit.

Lee Parry, GBWR Regional Development Officer, and former Coventry Rugby player said:

“The taster sessions launched in Coventry have been really successful.

“We had around 15 players interested which is fantastic numbers for the sport. Manni (Mandip Sehmi – coach and three time Paralympic) has done a great job creating a positive and fun environment for everyone who has come through the doors on a Saturday morning.

“Now we have the foundations to really move this club forward and make it sustainable. It is a great opportunity for disabled people across Coventry and Warwickshire and we welcome anyone who has a physical impairment to come along, meet the rest of the team and give it a try.”

Where: Xcel Centre, Mitchel Avenue, Coventry CV4 8DY

Dates: December 8 and 15

When: Saturdays between 9:30 and 11:30am
