The Sussex Bears Movie

This latest movie highlights the importance of wheelchair sports and this is the very first film about how just taking part in grass-roots disability sports saves lives, saves money, and creates an equal playing field.

5 minutes of inspiration

Already seen by NHS and GP medical trainees… this movie is highlighting why we need social prescribing in to disabled sports nationwide…

The Sussex Bears movie may only be a few minutes long but it follows the stories of 3 players inside the Sussex Bears Wheelchair Basketball team.

East Brighton resident Ricky moved to the area a few years ago and saw a vast difference in the opportunities given to those living with a disability compared to London where he lived for a couple of years before.

In London and in other areas of the UK people with disabilities can access sports almost every day of the week so they improve their core fitness, improve the quality of life by retaining independence for longer…

Ricky began a little wheelchair basketball session in East Brighton that was open to all players regardless of a team they played for, this led to Ricky and some teammates launching the Sussex Bears Wheelchair Basketball team.
