Disability charity organization Path to Success’ third annual charity Wheelchair Basketball Tournament will be held on 25 September. The tournament will this year raise money for women in disability sport.
The tournament will be held at the iconic Copper Box Arena in the Olympic Park, with funds raised directed to Path to Success’s Path to Tokyo 2020 campaign.
The campaign provides financial support to women who aspire to represent Britain at the Paralympics.
Path to Success’s Wheelchair Basketball Tournament provides an opportunity for able-bodied people to take part in a challenging sport alongside Paralympians and top UK-based players, and to learn more about the everyday athletes who make up the grassroots of disability sport in the UK.
Anita Choudhrie, Founder of Path to Success, said: “I am deeply inspired by the skill, determination and positive attitude of all of the Path to Success athlete. Our mission is to secure the legacy of disability sport in the UK and to inspire a new generation of British female Paralympic stars.
“To do that, we need to shine a spotlight on these athletes and introduce more people to disability sport. I’m really excited to welcome both ablebodied and disabled people alike to the latest edition of our charity tournament, and I’m confident the day will be a great success once again.”
Corporate teams can take part in the tournament, and they will be coached and joined on court by Paralympians, including Louise Sugden. Channel 4 presenter Jordan Jarrett-Bryan will act as compere and competitor.
